New Gases Thermodynamic Properties Models to Predict Combustion Phenomena 2005-01-2112
A new set of mathematical functions, that is able to describe gases' thermodynamic properties, has been developed. These functions have the form of a fifth order logarithmic polynomial (VoLP). They could be utilized for combustion processes, with “frozen composition” and “composition in equilibrium” evaluation. The VoLPs present several advantages: they are able to cover a wide range of temperatures with only a single mathematical function; they have an elevate accuracy and they present the possibility to extrapolate experimental data beyond the experimental temperature range. The VoLP coefficients have been evaluated through the least squares fit on the basis of experimental measurements (taken from scientific literature). The set of VoLPs gives the possibility to study the combustion phenomena and allows to describe specific heat at constant pressure, enthalpy, entropy and equilibrium constants for gases dissociation.
