Welcome to the
web site for Kerley Technical Services (KTS). This site offers information and resources that I have developed and
collected during more than 40 years as an equation of state (EOS)
theorist. (See my
biographical information.) It also presents the results
of new research that I am carrying out, now that I am semi-retired from the consulting business.
scientific topics are discussed on this site:
questions in quantum mechanics & statistical mechanics.
structure of condensed matter at low & high temperatures.
models of solids, liquids, mixtures, & phase transitions.
phenomena & chemical equilibrium.
for assembling EOS tables.
material behavior—porosity, reactions,
& material strength.
simulation of shock‑waves &
other hydrodynamic phenomena.
Navigating the Site
Use the boxes

My papers and reports, indexed and annotated according to topic
issues, answers to inquiries, matters that don't fit elsewhere
additions to the site & other
items of interest
EOS tables and material data
Information about the EOSPro code and how to download it

to other useful web sites
How to get in touch with me
Many parts of this
site are still under construction. The
EOSPro code is now available for download but will continue to evolve
in the future; check for new developments in this area. Three
tutorials (11.4 hours of narrated PPT presentations) have been
I have also uploaded the first three parts of a fourth tutorial (an
additional 4 hours); other parts
will be added as I finish them. The website also provides reports and tutorials on new and ongoing research; I
will add additional ones to the
site as they become available. New
additions will be announced
the blog and news pages. The "Database" and "Other Software"
pages are not yet available.
