The thermodynamic properties of the binary systems including hydrogen with methane, ethane, propane, and carbon dioxide were calculated from a Peng-Robinson equation of state (PR EOS). The mixing parameter of the present EOS has a functional form of temperature generalized by the critical temperatures of the hydrocarbons and carbon dioxide. Based on the corresponding states principle, the coefficients of the parameter were determined with a non-linear least squares fitting to the experimental critical points of the mixtures. The developed PR EOS shows good agreement with the experimental data of not only the critical points but also the phase equilibria. In the hydrogen binary systems, retrograde condensation is expected. The volumetric and enthalpy changes in this process were simulated for a hydrogen + carbon dioxide mixture of 0.55 mole fraction using the PR EOS at 270 K.. |

Fujii, Burnett PVT Measurements of Hydrogen and the Development of a Virial Equation of State at Pressures up to 100 MPa, *International Journal of Thermophysics*, Vol. 33, 381-395, 2012.03, PVT properties were measured for hydrogen by the Burnett method in the temperature range from 353 K to 473 K and at pressures up to 100 MPa. In the present Burnett method, the pressure measurement was simplified by using an absolute pressure transducer instead of a differential pressure transducer, which is traditionally used. The experimental procedures become easier, but the absolute pressure transducer is set outside the constant temperature bath because of the difficulty of its use in the bath, and the data acquisition procedure is revised by taking into account the effects of the dead space in the absolute pressure transducer. The measurement uncertainties in temperature, pressure, and density are 20 mK, 28 kPa, and 0.07 % to 0.24 % (k = 2), respectively. Based on the present data and other experimental data at low temperatures, a virial equation of state (EOS) from 220 K to 473 K and up to 100 MPa was developed for hydrogen with uncertainties in density of 0.15 % (k = 2) at P ≤ 15 MPa, 0.20 % at 15 MPa < P ≤ 40 MPa, and 0.24 % at P > 40 MPa, and this EOS shows physically reasonable behavior of the second and third virial coefficients. Isochoric heat capacities were also calculated from the virial EOS and were compared with the latest EOS of hydrogen. The calculated isochoric heat capacities agree well with the latest EOS within 0.5 % above 300 K and up to 100 MPa, while at lower temperatures, as the pressure increases, the deviations become larger (up to 1.5 %).. |

Fujii, Burnett Method with Absolute Pressure Transducer and Measurements for PVT Properties of Nitrogen and Hydrogen up to 473 K and 100 MPa, *International Journal of Thermophysics*, Vol. 33, 6-21, 2012.01, A measurement method for PVT properties of high-temperature and high-pressure gases was developed by simplifying the Burnett method and revising the data acquisition procedure. Instead of a differential pressure transducer, which is traditionally used, an absolute pressure transducer is used in the present method, and the measurement of pressure becomes easier. However, the absolute pressure transducer is placed outside the constant temperature bath because of the difficulty of its use in high-temperature surroundings, and some parts with different temperatures from the sample vessels exist as dead space. The present method takes into account the effect of the dead space in the data acquisition procedure. Nitrogen was measured in the temperature range from 353 K to 473 K and at pressures up to 100 MPa to determine the apparatus constants, and then, hydrogen was measured at 473 K and up to 100 MPa. The determined densities are in agreement within uncertainties of 0.07% to 0.24% (k = 2), both with the latest equation of state and existing measured data.. |

Takata, Theoretical and Experimental Study of a Flexible Wiretype Joule-Thomson Microrefrigerator for Use in Cryosurgery, *Transactions of the ASME, Journal of Heat Transfer*, Vol. 134, 020903-1 - 020903-7, 2012.02, We have developed a model capable of predicting the performance characteristics of a wiretype Joule–Thomson microcooler intended for use within a cryosurgical probe. Our objective was to be able to predict cold tip temperature, temperature distribution, and cooling power using only inlet gas properties as input variables. To achieve this, the model incorporated gas equations of state to account for changing gas properties due to heat transfer within the heat exchanger and expansion within the capillary. In consideration of inefficiencies, heat in-leak from free convection and radiation was also considered and the use of a 2D axisymmetric finite difference code allowed simulation of axial conduction. To validate simulation results, we have constructed and conducted experiments with two types of microcoolers differing in inner tube material, poly-ether-ether-ketone (PEEK) and stainless steel. The parameters of the experiment were used in the calculations. CO2was used as the coolant gas for inlet pressures from 0.5 MPa to 2.0 MPa. Heat load trials of up to 550 mW along with unloaded trials were conducted. The temperature measurements show that the model was successfully able to predict the cold tip temperature to a good degree of accuracy and well represent the temperature distribution. For the all PEEK microcooler in a vacuum using 2.0 MPa inlet pressure, the calculations predicted a temperature drop of 57 K and mass flow rate of 19.5 mg/s compared to measured values of 63 K and 19.4 mg/s, therefore, showing that conventional macroscale correlations can hold well for turbulent microscale flow and heat transfer as long as the validity of the assumptions is verified.. |

Takata, The Frequency Dependent Regenerator Cold Section and Hot Section Positional Reversal in a Coaxial Type Thermoacoustic Stirling Heat Pump, *Cryogenics*, Vol. 51, 591-597, 2011.10, We have constructed and tested two travelling wave thermoacoustic heat pumps using a coaxial configuration with the regenerator positioned in the annulus. We discovered a frequency dependent positional reversal of the cold section and hot section of the regenerator within the test frequency range. By decomposing the measured pressure wave within the annulus, we obtained the positive (w+) and negative (w−) propagating travelling waves. It has been revealed the change of frequency is accompanied by a change in magnitudes of w+ and w− which is in part influenced by the presence of travelling wave attenuation through the regenerator. The resulting change of dominant travelling wave on a given end of the regenerator will then change the direction of thermoacoustic heat pumping at that end. This will alter the regenerator temperature distribution and may reverse the cold and hot sections of the regenerator. As the reversal does not require additional moving parts, merely a change in frequency, this feature in coaxial travelling wave devices has tremendous potential for applications which require both heating and cooling operation.. |

Takata, Study on a Wire-type Joule Thomson Microcooler with a Concentric Heat Exchanger, *Applied Thermal Engineering*, Vol. 30, 2563-2573, 2010.11, This study examines the performance of a wire-type Joule Thomson microcooler utilizing a flexible concentric counterflow heat exchanger. Three gases: C2H4, CO2 and N2 were used separately for trials conducted at inlet pressures ranging from 0.5 MPa to 5 MPa with C2H4 having the best performance. During unloaded tests at an inlet pressure of 2.0 MPa, C2H4 obtained a minimum temperature of 225 K while CO2obtained a minimum temperature of 232 K. Using CO2 the microcooler was able to maintain a temperature of 273 K at 100 mW heat input and 2 MPa inlet pressure. An inlet pressure of 3 MPa allowed a 550 mW heat input at 273 K. Theoretical performance calculations were conducted and compared to experimental results revealing considerable reduction of microcooler performance due to the presence of heat in-leak. Results have displayed that the JT coefficient of the coolant gas is a more dominant factor than heat transfer properties in determining the performance of the coolant. Due to the microscale of the device, relevant scaling effects were evaluated, particularly entrance effects, surface roughness and axial conduction.. |

Through comparisons of PVT, saturated properties, heat capacity, and speed of sound among the latest EOSs for hydrogen, their features are discussed. The proper use of the EOSs, including a consideration of the nuclear isomers (ortho- and parahydrogen), is of great importance, especially for saturated properties, heat capacity, and speed of sound because these properties are different between the nuclear isomers. The present review concludes with recommendations for use of the EOSs for hydrogen.. |

N. Sakoda, M. Uematsu, A Thermodynamic Property Model for the Binary Mixture of Methane and Hydrogen Sulfide, *International Journal of Thermophysics*, Vol. 26, 1303-1325, 2005.11, A thermodynamic property model with new mixing rules using the Helmholtz free energy is presented for the binary mixture of methane and hydrogen sulfide based on experimental PρTx data, vapor–liquid equilibrium data, and critical-point properties. The binary mixture of methane and hydrogen sulfide shows vapor–liquid–liquid equilibria and a divergence of the critical curve. The model represents the existing experimental data accurately and describes the complicated behavior of the phase equilibria and the critical curve. The uncertainty in density calculations is estimated to be 2%. The uncertainty in vapor–liquid equilibrium calculations is 0.02 mole fraction in the liquid phase and 0.03 mole fraction in the vapor phase. The model also represents the critical points with an uncertainty of 2% in temperature and 3% in pressure. Graphical and statistical comparisons between experimental data and the available thermodynamic models are discussed. |

N. Sakoda, M. Uematsu, A Thermodynamic Property Model for Fluid Phase Hydrogen Sulfide, *International Journal of Thermophysics*, Vol. 25, 709-737, 2004.05, A Helmholtz free energy equation of state for the fluid phase of hydrogen sulfide has been developed as a function of reduced temperature and density with 23 terms on the basis of selected measurements of pressure–density–temperature (P, r, T), isobaric heat capacity, and saturation properties. Based on a comparison with available experimental data, it is recognized that the model represents most of the reliable experimental data accurately in the range of validity covering temperatures from the triple point temperature (187.67 K) to 760 K at pressures up to 170 MPa. The uncertainty in density calculation of the present equation of state is 0.7% in the liquid phase, and that in pressure calculation is 0.3% in the vapor phase. The uncertainty in saturated vapor pressure calculation is 0.2%, and that in isobaric heat capacity calculation is 1% in the liquid phase. The behavior of the isobaric heat capacity, isochoric heat capacity, speed of sound, and Joule–Thomson coefficients calculated by the present model shows physically reasonable behavior and those of the calculated ideal curves also illustrate the capability of extending the range of validity. Graphical and statistical comparisons between experimental data and the available thermodynamic models are also discussed.. |
