A thermodynamic property calculator for LNG and natural gas with the ability to perform vapour-liquid-solid equilibrium calculations, capture the complex solid formation regions seen in literature and generate full phase envelopes.
To install ThermoFAST, simply download the link, and extract the “.zip” file anywhere on your hard drive. Once extracted simply double click on the ThermoFAST icon to begin using the tool. Because it’s an .exe file you may need administrator privileges:
