The 24th of April, we were so fortunate to have visitors from the University of Lorraine in France, Prof. Jean Noël Jaubert and Ass. Prof. Silvia Lasala. In a seminar, they shared with us new insight on their recent research and progress on consistent alpha-correlations for cubic equations of state, classification of binary mixtures with the scheme of van Konynenburg and Scott, comparison of PC-SAFT and cubic equations of state and a consistent derivation of residual excess Helmholtz energy based mixing rules. Altogether, a very insightful and interesting seminar. A well deserved beer at Heidis Bier Bar at the “sunny-side” of Trondheim afterwards (see picture below). From the left, the picture shows Morten Hammer, myself, Jean Noël and Silvia.
