This book provides, for the first time, a thorough survey of the techniques and equipment for both high and low pressure phase equilibrium measurement and the equally challenging task of accurately modelling or predicting the equilibria. It is unique in the fact that it combines in-depth and authoritative coverage of both experimental and theoretical procedures in a single volume.
Beginning with a review of relevant thermodynamic theory, this book provides detailed discussions of the many different models and approaches, along with advantages and disadvantages for some theories and equations.
Part 1: the measurement of vapour-liquid equilibria; low pressure VLE measurement; high pressure VLE measurement. Part 2: the computation of vapour-liquid; thermodynamic consistency testing of HPVLE. Computer programs.
