Modelling CO₂ transport and the effect of impurities: a new equation of state for CCS pipeline transport
Demetriades, Thomas A. (2014) Modelling CO₂ transport and the effect of impurities: a new equation of state for CCS pipeline transport. EngD thesis, University of Nottingham.
In this EngD project I developed a new, analytic equation of state for use in the area of CCS pipeline transport. It was my aim to design a model which would exhibit a high degree of accuracy within the anticipated window of operation of CCS pipelines; from 260 to 335K and 1 to 200bar, whilst simultaneously retaining a simplicity and ease-of-use, a lack of which made some other available equations particularly unwieldy. Having conducted a comprehensive literature review and attended many academic and industrial conferences throughout this project, I felt that there was a need for an equation of state which could perform both these functions. This was the key motivation for my work, and the model presented in this thesis was developed in order that it might contribute towards negating the many concerns that currently surround the pipeline transport stage of CCS.
