The equation of state developed for sweet/dry natural gases has been used to predict the sonic velocity of pure systems for which data exist. In the region of interest to sonic nozzle calculations, excellent agreement has been obtained between pure methane experimental sonic velocities and the calculated sound speeds from the equation of state with agreement often better than 0.05%. At low temperatures (<250K) and pressures near the critical pressure of methane significant differences between calculated sonic velocities and experimental sound speeds were found. This suggests the equation of state could be improved, if deemed necessary, for this region. To date, accurate speed of sound measurements for actual natural gas mixtures have not been made. This severely limits testing the equation of state beyond the limited amount of pure component data until mixture data become available. A computer program has been developed to predict all the important properties used in sonic nozzle calculations.

This research effort has extended the highly accurate compressibility/supercompressibility factor correlation for sweet/dry natural gases developed in 1981-1984 to include water and hydrogen sulfide. In the temperature and pressure range where most custody transfers take place, the correlation is accurate within 0.1% or better in the super compressibility factor. One of the conclusions reached in this work is that a more extensive high quality PVT data base for wet/sour natural gases is needed to further test the correlation. The revised alternate characterization methods developed in this work allow faster and simpler calculations resulting in large reductions in computer time when compared with the alternate characterization methods presented in A.G.A. Report No. 8. The prediction accuracies for these methods are comparable or slightly better than the A.G.A. Report NX-19 alternate characterization methods, the methods developed in this work require similar computer time, while giving dramatically more accurate results. The equation-of-state method has been applied for prediction of highly accurate sonic velocities and critical flow factors for use with sonic nozzles. The prediction of the sonic velocity is shown to be generally accurate within + or - 0.1% at reasonable operation conditions for sonic nozzles. The prediction of critical flow factors is also shown to be more accurate than the Johnson method.

THERMODYNAMICS OF CONTINUOUS SYSTEMS ( Book )
1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The feasibility of a unified approach to transport processes based on classical thermodynamics or thermostatics is examined. The first chapter reviews the concept of discontinuous, uniform systems for analyzing continuous or nonequilibrium systems. A comparison of the microscopic and macroscopic approaches for establishing the existence of the reciprocal relations is also analyzed. The implications of invoking the notion of local equilibrium are demonstrated by simple temperature relaxation processes. Chapters 2, 3, and 4 give detailed derivations of the entropy balance for continuous, fluid systems in which diffusion and chemical reactions take place. Emphasis is given to the well-known transport theory paradox which reveals inconsistencies in the entropy balance obtained from classical mechanics as opposed to classical thermodynamics. Techniques for avoiding these discrepancies are proposed. (Author).
Development of improved capabilities for computation of gas supercompressibility factors and other properties : final report (July 1981-September 1984) ( Book )
1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A new supercompressibility factor correlation has been developed for essentially dry and sweet (i.e. less than one mole percent of water or hydrogen sulfide) natural gases for use in gas flow calculations for custody exchange. The new correlation is applicable in a wide range of temperature, pressure and gas composition. The correlation is accurate to about .03 percent on the supercompressibility factor for pure methane in a temperature range from -60 to 180 F and up to a pressure of 1500 psia. For about 70 natural gases with compositions ranging up to 50 percent nitrogen, 30 percenty carbon dioxide, 10 percent ethane and 5 percent propane, the correlation prediction of the supercompressibility factor is within .03 percent on the average from experimental data. Based on other data comparisons using natural gas pure component and binary mixture data, it is estimated that the predicted supercompressibility factor should be on the average within .1 percent of the 'true' value for natural gases with up to 50 percent nitrogen, 50 percent carbon dioxide, 20 percent ethane, and 5 percent propane in a temperature range from -60 to 180 F and pressures up to 1500 psia. The correlation can be also be used for calculations in a temperature range between -200 and 400 F and pressures to 20,000 psia but with less accuracy.
