Hi everyone
For calculating the vapour fraction and phase compositions of a hydrocarbon mixture at given Pressure, Temperature and overall compositions, the rachfordrice equation needs to be solved.

Dear Breizh
I had a long and detailed look at your spreadsheet and compared it to what DWSIM outputs. Then I compared it to my code. It's a pretty good spreadsheet, only thing is it will not incorporate the new phase compositions to evaluate the new K values.
Anyway, it does what I wanted it to: give me a good way to initialise the rachford rice method and do one iteration with a reasonable output of vapour fraction (ie 0<= V<=1).
Thanks. It helped me validate my code.

I would like to know about convergence pressure Pk ..assume that we have reservoir fluid composition (Pres, Tres, Zi are Known) , and we would like to estimate Pb pressure (unknown), by using Rachford Rice equation(RR eq.) when we want to calculate the K values we need the value of Pk, Is there any equation to calculate it direct with high accuracy ,any example done by spreadsheet !!
Kind regards

Hi,
To get a meaningful answer I encourage you to define the variables included in your post ( Pb , Pk) .
Good luck

Typically you use rachford rice to calcuate the amount of vaporisation at a known temperature and pressure, you iterate around until the K values converge. (if your doing it rigorously).
To find the Pressue at a specific level of vaporisation you have another outer convergence loop, whereby you adjust P untl you get the bubble point/dew point or whatever other criteria your trying to meet.
