Benedict-Webb-Rubin Equation of State for Methane at Cryogenic Conditions
Recent advances in the engineering of cryogenic systems, especially the liquefaction of natural gas, have made new demands on equations of state. Accurate representation of the thermodynamic properties of methane and mixtures containing methane at low temperatures is now required for process calculations.
