The purpose of this study is the thermodynamic investigation of polyamide resin Nylon-6 over a range of temperatures up to 6000K and pressures up to 100,000 atmospheres. Two sets of equilibrium composition equations are used--one representing a pure gas phase, the other a heterogeneous system of gas and solid carbon. The gas phase of the heterogeneous chemical system, like the homogeneous gas phase, comprises 90 gaseous carbon-hydrogen-oxygen-nitrogen species. The results of the computational program are presented in both tabular and graphic form. The latter is a conventional Mollier diagram in which specific enthalpy is plotted against specific entropy, with cross plots of temperature, pressure, and molecular weight. Author
