Sanchez/Lacombe 
Top Previous Next 
VLXE Blend offers the two version of the Sanchez/Lacombe equation of state: •Original Sanchez/Lacombe. •Modified Sanchez/Lacombe
The modified version is obtained by: •Integrating the expression of P from the original •Differentiating with respect to V to get P and mole numbers to get fugacity's
This is not possible with the original version.
Since the modified version obeys an ideal gas limits i.e P goes to zero if V goes to infinity, it is recommended to use the modified version.
Extensive work has been done in the polymer related field by R. A. Heideman and Ryan Krenz.
Note: For solvents it is possible to obtain the parameters from the critical properties and the acentric factor. This is based on work done made by R. A. Heideman & K. Gauter and is build into the user interface in VLXE Blend.
