PR, PR78


Developed from the Redlich–Kwong–Soave EOS, this EOS [1] gives better vapour pressure and density results for many petrochemical compounds. For this class of compounds even caloric data are represented rather well.

For heavy alkanes an update of this EOS is available, referred to as PR78 on this website [2].

The critical compression factor of this EOS is fixed. It is not possible for this EOS to match all 3 critical conditions.

adjustable parameters: 3
