(190aa) Computer Simulations of Vapor-Liquid-Liquid Equilibria Involving Hydrocarbons and Water
AIChE Annual Meeting
Monday, November 17, 2008 - 6:00pm to 8:30pm
In this work three-phase equilibria between hydrocarbons and water and their mixed vapor phase are studied unsing Gibbs Ensemble Monte Carlo simulations. In earlier investigations phase equilibria between a single liquid and a single vapour phase of the pure components like water , pure hydrocarbons and hydrocarbon mixtures  have been the subject of our studies. Optimal parameter combinations for the binary hydrocarbon-water systems were determined earlier  and those parameter sets were used in subsequent studies of the two-phase system of liquid water/liquid hydrocarbons . In the present study, the latter system is extended to include a vapor phase in order to more realistically model these systems.
