Published under the auspices of both IUPAC and its affiliated body, the International Association of Chemical Thermodynamics (IACT), this book is intended as a guide for scientists or technicians who use equations of state for fluids. Concentrating on the application of theory, the book discusses the practical use, and strengths and weaknesses, of each type of equation. The outcome of IUPAC Project 2008-014-1-100, it updates the equations of state for fluids and fluid mixtures and includes material on significant developments in the equations of state for chemically reacting and nonequilibrium fluids.
Applied Thermodynamics of Fluids brings together an international team of distinguished experts to address the needs of practitioners within academia, government, and industry. The topics presented are relevant to the energy industry, particularly the hydrocarbon economy and the development of new power sources, and are also significant for the application of liquid crystals and ionic liquids to commercial products. This reference will be useful for postgraduate researchers in the fields of chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, chemistry, and physics.
