A four parameter Pitzer-curl type correlatıon of second virial coefficients

Orbey, Hasan
The Pitzer-Curl ( 1957) correlation of second virial coefficients is slightly modified to accommodate high temperature data ( TT4 4.0) of He and H2 and extended successfully to “ nonstandard” fluids as defined by Tarakad and Danner (1977), by introducing a fourth parameter per compound. The new version improves results at the high temperature limit while it gives comparable results with the previous versions presented by Pitzer and Curl ( 1957) and Tsonopoulos ( 1974) at lower temperatures. The present approach enhances the applicability of the method for polar and associating compounds by introducing a correcting term for 129 such fluids. The extension of the correlation to mixtures requires an additional parameter per binary. Successful results were obtained for thirty nine binary systems investigated in this work

A data reduction technique is introduced for the evaluation of second virial coefficients of gases at subcritical temperatures. The method makes use of the vapor-liquid equilibrium data, i.e., temperature, saturation pressure, liquid and vapor molar volumes and can be used to obtain second virial coefficients of a wide variety of fluids including polar, associating and quantum gases. The calculated second virial coefficients are in good agreement with their counterparts from literature, which are obtained f...

An empirical cubic equation of state(EOS) was obtained by truncating the virial expansion in reciprocal of molar volume after the third term. The constants of the EOS was generalized in terms of critical temperature, critical pressure and Pitzer's acentric factor. In pure component applications the EOS exhibited a performance comparable to Peng-Robinson (1976) EOS in the reduced temperature range of 0.5 to 1. The present EOS tends to predict better saturation liquid volumes at reduced temperatures below 0....

In this study, supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO(2)) deposition was used to prepare vulcan-supported Pt (Pt/Vulcan) electrocatalysts for proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs), and the effects of process variables on the properties of the electrocatalysts were investigated. The two different methods used to reduce the organometallic precursor were thermal reduction in nitrogen at atmospheric pressure and thermal reduction in scCO(2). In the former method, the maximum Pt loading achieved was 9%, and t...
A Five Layer One-Dimensional PEMFC Model with Detailed Electrode Kinetics
Ficicilar, B.; Eroğlu, İnci; Nguyen, T. V. (2010-10-01)
In this study, a non-isothermal, two-phase, one-dimensional, and steady state proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell model is developed to investigate the detailed electrode kinetics in the anode and cathode catalytic regions and the effects of these reaction mechanisms on the performance of a PEM fuel cell. Langmuir-Butler-Volmer (LBV) type reaction rate expressions are suggested for both anode and cathode electrochemical reactions. A two-phase energy balance approach is used to catch the thermal transpo...
