 May 13, 2013, 12:43 What's is mixing law #1 Member   ben Join Date: Apr 2013 Posts: 36 Rep Power: 6 Hi everyone, I am doing species transport simulation and have no idea some theory in fluent. What's is mixing law, mass weighted mixing law, ideal gas mixing law and kinetic theory? For example, to calculate the heat capacity of the mixture, I guess the mixing law is based on the molar fraction of each species and the mass weighted mixing law is based on the mass fraction. Is this correct? and what is ideal gas mixing law? I will appreciate it a lot for your reply.

I think you can find more details in Fluent user guide. But if you don't, have a look at thermodynamics book regarding ideal and non-ideal solutions. Mixing laws are very important concept in solutions thermodynamic. __________________ Regard yours

Do you know some source for looking for some thermodynamic data and physical properties of material? In particular, for FLUENT, we sometimes need to define L-J Characteristic Length and L-J energy, where should we go to look for these? Expect your answer. Thanks Best wishes

But I haven't tried that before. Hope it helps __________________ Regard yours
