NIST 14. NIST Mixture Property Database

Published

Author(s)

Daniel G. Friend

Abstract

The NIST Mixture Property Database calculates thermodynamic and transport properties of mixtures of fluids selected from any of 17 possible pure components. The emphasis of the database is on density prediction (especially for CO2-rich mixtures), but for other properties and mixtures are also accurate.All phase equilibrium calculations are performed with the Peng-Robinson equation of state, and coexisting phase properties are calculated with the NIST extended corresponding states model.Mixtures formed from any of 17 pure components (including hydrocarbons, nitrogen, oxygen, argon, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide) are handled by the database.
