Hardcover, 2000, 928 pages. ISBN 0-444-50384-6, NLG 525.00, Euro 238.23,
book has been prepared under the auspices of the IUPAC Commission on
Thermodynamics (I.2). The authors of the 18 chapters are all recognized
experts in the field. The book gives an up-to-date presentation of equations
of state for fluids and fluid mixtures. It is intended for postgraduate
researchers in the fields of chemical engineering, mechanical engineering,
chemistry, and physics.
All principal approaches for developing equations of state are covered.
The theoretical basis and practical use of each type of equation is
discussed, and the strengths and weaknesses of each are evaluated. Topics
addressed include the virial equation of state, cubic equations and
generalized van der Waals equations, perturbation theory, integral equations,
and corresponding stated and mixing rules. Special attention is also
devoted to associating fluids, polydisperse fluids, polymer systems,
self-assembled systems, ionic fluids, and fluids near critical points.
