Kelvin Equation for a Non-Ideal Multicomponent Mixture

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The Kelvin equation is generalized by application to a case of a multicomponent non-ideal mixture. Such a generalization is necessary in order to describe the two-phase equilibrium in a capillary medium with respect to both normal and retrograde condensation. The equation obtained is applied to the equilibrium state of a hydrocarbon mixture ina gas-condensate reservoir.
