Abstract:

A formalism for computing thermodynamic properties and equilibrium compositions of reacting gas mixtures at high densities is developed. This formalism makes use of the Haar-Shenker version of the augmented hard sphere equation of state. The formalism is used for computing compressibility factors and equilibrium compositions of air in the temperature range 2,000 K - 13,000 K for densities from that appropriate to air at standard conditions 0 C, 1 atmosphere to densities 1000 times as great. These tables are consistent with the earlier NBS tables which covered the range up to 100 times that density. Some interesting features of the dependence of composition on density are discussed.
