In a new paper, we dissect the exergy balance of a large-scale hydrogen liquefaction process.

The paper entitled Dissecting the exergy balance of a hydrogen liquefier: Analysis of a scaled-up claude hydrogen liquefier with mixed refrigerant pre-cooling has just been accepted for publication in International Journal of Hydrogen energy. In the paper, we analyze in detail a hydrogen liquefier ...

In a new paper, we discuss the influence of coupling phenomena and interfacial transfer on the modelling of distillation columns.

Our paper entitled The influence of interfacial transfer and film coupling in the modeling of distillation columns to separate nitrogen and oxygen mixtures has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Chemical Engineering Science X (the open access version of J. Chem. Eng. ...

In a new paper, we present quantum corrections for cubic EoS that dramatically improve their performance for hydrogen, helium, deuterium, neon and mixtures that contain these components.

Our paper entitled Accurate quantum-corrected cubic equations of state for helium, neon, hydrogen, deuterium and their mixtures has been published in Fluid Phase Equilibria. Cubic equations of state have thus far yielded poor predictions of the thermodynamic properties of quantum fluids such as hydrogen, ...

New paper shows that surface thermodynamics can be used on shock waves

Our paper entitled Nonequilibrium thermodynamics of surfaces captures the energy conversions in a shock wave has been published in the open access journal Chemical Physics Letters X. In the letter, we develop a theory for the entropy production in a shock wave using Gibbs’ ...

New paper on Ice formation and growth in alcohol mixtures

Our paper entitled Ice formation and growth in supercooled water-alcohol mixtures: Theory and experiments with dual fiber sensors has just been published in Fluid Phase Equilibria. Increased knowledge on fluid-solid phase transitions is needed, both when they are undesired and can impair processes operation, ...
