Property estimation for "new" refrigerants.


The paper presents computational times for a range of refrigerant property calculations using various equations of state and property correlations. For each set of calculations, accuracies are compared to a nominated "most accurate" equation of state. Ozone-safe refrigerants are emphasised in the data tables. The results will help refrigeration designers and those simulating refrigeration processes to trade off convenience, accuracy and computation time when choosing property prediction methods to suit their applications.
