NitrogenFluidProperties

Fluid properties for Nitrogen (N2)

Fluid properties for nitrogen are mainly calculated using the Span et al. equation of state (Span et al., 2000). This formulation uses density and temperature as the primary variables with which to calculate properties such as density, enthalpy and internal energy.

When used with the pressure and temperature interface, which is the case in the Porous Flow module, nitrogen properties are typically calculated by first calculating density iteratively for a given pressure and temperature. This density is then used to calculate the other properties, such as internal energy, directly.

Viscosity and thermal conductivity are calculated using the formulation presented in Lemmon and Jacobsen (2004).

Dissolution of nitrogen into water is calculated using Henry's law (IAPWS, 2004).
