Trainees will see how important is the work on pure components properties and will learn how to select the correct thermodynamic model to be able to accurately model physical phenomena.

At the end of the training session, participants will be better equipped to answer thermodynamic issues they encounter in their regular activities and will have a practical knowledge of the utilization of thermodynamic calculation tools such as Simulis Thermodynamics and ProPhyPlus .

Who should attend?
The training session is dedicated to all technicians and engineers involved in properties calculation (enthalpy, entropy, viscosity, thermal conductivity...) and in fluid phase equilibrium calculations


One day (9:00 AM to 6:00 PM)

I    Introduction: Influence of thermodynamic models on simulation results

II   Thermodynamic properties and phase equilibrium main principles
  - Pure components - equations of state
  - Mixtures

III   Phase equilibrium and enthalpies calculations
