Derivatives for the Equations of State

  • Nikolay Ivanov KolevEmail author


Numerical modeling of complicated physical phenomena such as multicomponent multi-phase flows is a powerful tool supplementing experiments and enabling optimum design of complicated technical facilities. The wide range of computer codes developed over the past 30 years for the description of multidimensional single-, two- and multiphase flows inevitably leads to the step of developing a universal flow analyzer. Such a computer code should model transient and steady-state three-dimensional flows in a complicated geometry with arbitrary internals. The flow should be described by multi-velocity fields, each of them consisting of an arbitrary number of chemical components.
