  • In this paper, a purely predictive model for the phase equilibria computation of mixtures involving fatty acids (FA) and supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO{sub 2}) is proposed. In a first step, the phase equilibria modeling of FA/CO{sub 2} binary systems were performed using the Peng-Robinson equation of state. To obtain a purely predictive model, the group contribution method developed by Abdoul et al. which allows the prediction of the binary interaction parameters (k{sub ij}) was extended to FA compounds. In a second step, the proposed model was used to predict the phase equilibria data of ternary and quaternary systems found inmore » the literature. In a last step, bubble-point and dewpoint pressures of systems involving CO{sub 2} and multicomponent mixtures of FA were measured in their laboratory, and the previous model was used in order to check its capability in predicting these data.« less
  • In this paper, a purely predictive model for the phase equilibria computation of mixtures involving fatty acid esters (FAE) and supercritical carbon dioxide is proposed. In a first step, the phase equilibria modeling of FAE/CO{sub 2} binary systems were performed using the Peng-Robinson equation of state. To obtain a purely predictive model, the critical properties ({Tc}, P{sub c}) and the acentric factor ({omega}) of the FAE were estimated with specific correlations. Moreover, the group contribution method developed by Abdoul et al., which allows the prediction of binary interaction parameters (k{sub ij}), was extended to ester compounds and an additional groupmore » (the ester function) was defined. Such an approach allowed the authors to correlate with quite good accuracy all the binary FAE/CO{sub 2} systems. In a second step, dew points of (CO{sub 2}/fish oil) systems were measured and the previous model was used to check its capability in predicting these data. The fish oil under study contained 30 different fatty acid ethyl esters, and the model was able to predict with very good accuracy the measured saturation pressures.« less
  • (K{sub 0.5}Na{sub 0.5}){sub 1-x}Li{sub x}Nb{sub 0.84}Ta{sub 0.1}Sb{sub 0.06}O{sub 3} (KNLNTS) lead free ceramics with different Li concentration were fabricated by conventional solid-state reaction method. By increasing Li ions in KNLNTS, the grains grow up and the crystal structure changes from orthorhombic to tetragonal. When 0.03 ≤ x ≤ 0.05, the ceramics structure lays in PPT region. Polarization versus electric field (P-E) hysteresis loops at room temperature show good ferroelectric properties and the remnant polarization decreases by increasing Li content while coercive electric keeps almost unchanged. In PPT region, taking x = 0.04 as an example, the sample shows excellent dielectricmore » properties: the dielectric constant is 1159 and loss tangent is 0.04, while the piezoelectric constant d{sub 33} is 245 pC/N and kp is 0.44 at room temperature, it is promising for (K{sub 0.5}Na{sub 0.5}){sub 1-x}Li{sub x}Nb{sub 0.84}Ta{sub 0.1}Sb{sub 0.06}O{sub 3} with 4 at. % Li to substitute PZT.« less
  • With regard to determining the instaneous viscosity ratios under which miscible displacement takes place, it is of importance to consider typical viscosity vs. composition curves, the viscosity envelopes, and the viscosity of effluent curves. Each of the above is illustrated by a graph. The first graph shows the viscosity of mixtures of IPA (ethanol) and brine, and IPA and Soltrol C. The second graph shows the viscosity envelope for the IPA system (23$ C). The third graph shows the viscosity of the effluent in the first run in an IPA-soltrol C-brine system. The addition of calcium chloride to ethanol resultsmore » in a higher displacement efficiency by virtue of increased viscosity ratios in spite of rather poorer phase relationship.« less
  • The addition of calcium chloride to isopropyl alcohol (IPA) produced similar but even more defined effects with regard to increased viscosity ratios and the resulting improved displacement efficiencies. The appropriate curves for the IPA to Soltrol C-brine systems are presented graphically. A comparison of these graphs serves to explain why IPA 2 displaced Soltrol C and brine much more efficiently than pure IPA, and even more efficiently than tertiary butyl alcohol (TBA). The favorable viscosity ratio (viscosity of the aqueous phase/viscosity of the oleic phase) obtained throughout the transition zone initiates a higher fractional flow of oil in the stabilizedmore » bank. The high favorable viscosity ratio at the front of the miscible zone (viscosity of the fluid in the miscible zone/viscosity of the fluid in the transition zone) tends to suppress the formation of the fingers at the interface of the stabilized bank and the transition zone, which thereby results in the later breakthrough of alcohol. The highly viscous miscible zone material acts in a piston-like manner which is also responsible for a longer transition zone and the buildup of oil in it.« less
