A brief description: My PhD project focuses on the heat capacity measurements of hydrocarbon mixtures and refrigerants via differential scanning calorimetry, and the model improvement for thermophysical properties. The measured data were applied to identify how well various equations of state can predict heat capacity at industrial relevant conditions. Comparisons were conducted to popular industrial and academic models. Furthermore, with the new accurate measured data, multi-parameter Helmholtz energy model was regressed to provide solutions for the industry. The achieved experimental results and the improved models contribute to the industry for a better understanding in thermodynamic property behaviour of hydrocarbon mixtures and refrigerants.
