Totally inclusive cubic equation of state with five parameters for pure fluids
A totally inclusive cubic equation of state (cubic EOS) is proposed. Although, its form is fairly simple as compared with the present cubic equations, it can include all of them as special cases. The EOS has five parameters. By fitting the experimental critical isothermal for six typical substances combining the critical conditions, the generalized expressions for the five parameters at critical temperature are established. The temperature coefficients of the five parameters for 43 substances are determined by fitting the experimental data of vapor pressure and saturated liquid density. These coefficients are correlated with the critical compressibility factor and acentric factor to obtain the generalized expressions. The predicted saturated vapor pressure, saturated liquid density, critical isothermal and coexistence curve near the critical point show that the equation gives the best results when compared with the Redlich-Kwong-Soave (RKS) and Peng-Robinson (PR) EOS.
