Mallepally, R. R., Bamgbade, B., Rowane, A. J. , Rokni, H. B., Newkirk, M. S. & McHugh, M. A. (2018). Fluid properties at high pressures and temperatures: Experimental and modelling challenges. The Journal of Supercritical Fluids, 134, pp. 33-40. doi: 10.1016/j.supflu.2017.12.003


Thermophysical properties impact many aspects of the chemical process industries. Here three example areas, primarily in the energy sector, are highlighted to provide context for the experimental and modelling challenges associated with obtaining fluid property data at high pressures and temperatures (HPHT). These three areas include the recovery of petroleum reserves in ultra-deep reservoirs, the use of lubricants to reduce frictional losses in the automotive industries, and the use of high-pressure, common rail diesel fuel delivery to reduce soot emissions for greener environments. The accurate knowledge of thermodynamic and transport properties in these three focused areas minimizes associated operating uncertainties and accelerates safe, reliable, and robust process and product development.
