Development of an equation of state for computation of supercompressibility factors, critical flow factors, and other properties for wet, sour natural gases, synthetic gases and admixtures : annual report (October 1985 - September 1986)( Book )

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
Development of improved capabilities for computation of gas supercompressibility factors and other properties : annual report (July 1982-June 1983)( Book )

2 editions published between 1982 and 1983 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To develop a new supercompressibility factor correlation which is highly accurate and also applicable to a broad range of natural gas mixtures encountered in the gas industry
Development of working fluid thermodynamic properties information for geothermal cycles - Phase I : semiannual report( Book )

2 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the first half of Phase I of this research program, the following elements of research were performed: (1) the collection and processing of data for pure components which is 80 percent complete as to substance, (2) the evaluation of the generalized Modified Benedict-Webb-Rubin (MBWR) equation of state for halogenated hydrocarbon saturated thermodynamic properties, (3) the determination of the pure component parameters of the MBWR for four polar fluids, and (4) the investigation of modifications of the MBWR for improved prediction of properties of polar fluids. A primary conclusion of the Phase I work is that the MBWR will predict properties for polar fluids with small to moderate dipole moments (less than 1.6 Debyes) but needs modification for fluids with larger moments
THERMODYNAMICS OF CONTINUOUS SYSTEMS by C. M Sliepcevich( Book )

2 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries 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 WorldCat member 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
