The purpose of the book is to give an overview of the main thermodynamic models used by the engineer or engineering researcher processes. These fall into two main families: equations of state and activity coefficient models.
The book presents a particular state of the art purely predictive models.
- It presents a large overview of the main thermodynamic models
- Explains the theoretical base
- Gives methods to estimate model parameters in detail
Engineers in the Chemical Industries; Engineering researchers using thermodynamic models to simulate processes

Jean-Noël Jsubert is a Professor of chemical engineering thermodynamics at ENSIC, a state-run institution of higher education. He received his doctorate in 1993 from University of La Méditerranée. He is reviewer for over 40 leading international journals and has published more than 100 research papers. In 2008, he was the Chairman of the 23rd ESAT. He is the French delegate at the working party thermodynamics and transport properties of the EFCE and currently runs the research group “Thermodynamics and Energy” of the LRGP. His research interests include the development of predictive thermodynamic models based on the group contribution concept, the use of exergetic life cycle assessment in order to reduce CO2 emissions, the measurement and correlation of liquid-vapour equilibrium under high pressure, enhanced oil recovery, and the development of complex algorithms to compute global phase diagrams with emphasis to stability analysis.
