Description

Thermodynamic Models for Chemical Engineering gives an overview of the main thermodynamic models used by engineers and in engineering researcher processes. These fall into two main families, equations of state and activity coefficient models. The book presents the state-of-the-art of purely predictive models.

Key Features

  • Presents a comprehensive overview of the main thermodynamic models
  • Explains their theoretical base
  • Gives detailed methods to estimate model parameters

Readership

Engineers in the Chemical Industries; Engineering researchers using thermodynamic models to simulate processes

About the Author

Jean-Noel Jaubert

Jean–Noël Jaubert is a Professor of chemical engineering thermodynamics at ENSIC (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Industries Chimiques), a state–run institution of higher education characterized by a highly selective admission procedure. He received his doctorate in 1993 and has published more than 150 research papers. He is the French delegate at the working party thermodynamics and transport properties of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering and currently runs the research group Thermodynamics and Energy of the LRGP (Laboratoire Réactions et Génie des Procédés). 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–vapor equilibrium under high pressure and enhanced oil recovery.
