Summary

The learning outcome is to learn the numerical methods that are used to evaluate thermophysical properties of pure components and mixtures and there applications for fluid phase changes and separation problems.

Content

Day 1 :
How nanoscale interactions influence the macroscale properties
Concept of equation of state
Ideal behaviour and residual properties
Corresponding state principle
How equations of state are designed
Review of some equations of state (virial, BWR type, cubic equations)

 

Day 2 :
Mixture properties
Ideal mixture and excess properties
Phase equilibria
Application of equations of state to mixtures

 

Day 3 :
Excess properties for strongly nonideal mixtures
Excess Gibbs free energy models :

Keywords
