D5 Properties of Multicomponent Fluid Mixtures

Abstract

For the design of processes, the knowledge of the vapor–liquid equilibrium (VLE) is essential in many cases, either to be able to detect the formation of a second phase or to quantitatively describe the properties of the coexisting phases in a two-phase process. The VLE of any given system depends strongly on composition as well as on temperature or pressure.
