Abstract

New equations of state for the binary mixtures H2 + CH4, H2 + N2, H2 + CO2, and H2 + CO are presented. The results are part of an ongoing research project aiming at an improvement of the GERG-2008 model for the description of hydrogen-rich multicomponent mixtures. The equations are formulated in terms of the reduced Helmholtz energy and allow for the calculation of all thermodynamic properties over the entire fluid surface including the gas phase, liquid phase, supercritical region, and equilibrium states. The mathematical structure of the new mixture models corresponds to the form chosen for the reference model GERG-2008 of Kunz and Wagner [J. Chem. Eng. Data 57, 3032 (2012)]. In this way, the equations can be implemented into the existing framework of the GERG-2008 model. The ranges of validity of the new equations correspond to the normal and extended ranges of validity of the GERG-2008 model
