Data for Thermophysical Properties of Humid Gases in Power Cycles



Allan H. Harvey, Mark O. McLinden, Richard A. Perkins


This report summarizes the results of work performed for DOE/NETL Interagency Agreement DE-AI26-06NT42957. The key objectives for this work were to: (1) Use results of first-principles quantum mechanics to develop a description of the thermodynamics of humid gases in power cycles. (2) Validate the thermodynamic description by high-accuracy density measurements at high temperatures. (3) Measure the thermal conductivity of key water-nitrogen and water-CO2 mixtures at conditions relevant to power cycles.
