Background and issues
Knowledge of certain physical quantities such as viscosity (forecasting pressure drops), Gross Calorific Value (combustion), specific gravity (flows), liquefaction domains... is necessary for the management of a gas network or the optimized use of natural gas as a fuel or raw material. Gaspack allows these calculations according to the composition and conditions of use (pressure, temperature). Several reference methods are available for comparison.
Gaspack allows the following calculations :
- Calculations of various physical quantities: compressibility factor, specific gravity, viscosity, GCV, calorific coefficients
- Two-phase calculations: flash, bubble point / dew point, phase envelope
- Application calculations: water dew point, hydrate formation, methane number...
- Use of different reference methods: GERG88, GERG2004, AGA8, K75, PR, SRK...
