Краткое описание

Thermodynamic properties at high temperature in gases and/or in plasmas are very important in various fields, namely, in the field of breaking technology in arc, cutting plasma, welding or burning. Knowledge of thermodynamic coefficients is necessary for any modeling involving hydrodynamic equations. This paper is devoted to the calculation of thermodynamic properties of equilibrium compositions: mass density, enthalpy, and specific heat of methane (CH4) thermal plasmas mixed with hydrogen (H2). These data are computed in the temperature range 300−30,000 K and at various pressures (0.1-24) atm. The general results show that the infuence of the methane presence on the thermodynamic properties can be important in this temperature range.
