TRENDS IN PHASE BEHAVIOR
TRENDS IN PHASE BEHAVIORThermophysical properties usually and fortunately fall into regular patterns within and among families of compounds, and these patterns are useful to fill gaps in measurements, to identify outliers that are likely in error, and to educate chemical engineers to anticipate expected behaviors. This idea is especially attractive today because large databases of thermophysical properties are widely available. These databases can easily generate patterns, but also should be tested to identify errors and outliers. The patterns of behavior are more evident for fluid properties than for solid properties. This section provides representative examples of property patterns for the phase behavior of pure fluids and mixtures.
