Computer Methods

Abstract

In contrast to the methods outlined in the previous chapter, the subject of this chapter is the rigorous thermodynamic models for predicting hydrates formation. Although the methods are complex and only provided in a rather cursory manner, these are the methods used in the computer software programs commonly used by engineers in the field. Several computer programs are used to show the accuracy of the predictions. The main focus of this chapter is to provide several examples that demonstrate the accuracy of the hydrate software packages available to process engineers.
