This study presents a new formula for the surface tension prediction of alkenes. As a first step, an analysis of the available data of the experimental surface tension data for alkenes was performed.

As a final step, an analysis of the available data of the experimental surface tension data for alkenes was performed starting from the two recently proposed equations for the prediction of the surface tension of refrigerants based on the corresponding states principle. To minimize the deviation between the predicted data and the experimental data and to find the optimal equation coefficients for experimental data regression, a (μ + λ)-evolution strategy was adopted. The analysis showed that the equation that gave the best results for the prediction of the surface tension of alkenes was the one with a very limited number of parameters. The finally proposed equation is very simple and gives a noticeable improvement with respect to the existing equations.

Abstract

This study presents a new formula for the surface tension prediction of alkenes. As a first step, an analysis of the available data of the experimental surface tension data for alkenes was performed. The experimental data were collected, after a careful literature survey, for the following pure fluids: propene, 1-hexene, 1-heptene, 1-octene, 1-decene, 1-tetradecene, and 1-pentadecene. Then, the experimental data were regressed with the most reliable semi-empirical correlating methods based on the corresponding state theory existing in the literature. As a final step, an analysis of the available data of the experimental surface tension data for alkenes was performed starting from the two recently proposed equations for the prediction of the surface tension of refrigerants based on the corresponding states principle. To minimize the deviation between the predicted data and the experimental data and to find the optimal equation coefficients for experimental data regression, a (μ + λ)-evolution strategy was adopted. The analysis showed that the equation that gave the best results for the prediction of the surface tension of alkenes was the one with a very limited number of parameters. The finally proposed equation is very simple and gives a noticeable improvement with respect to the existing equations. It is based on the corresponding state principle, containing the acentric factor, the critical temperature, and pressure. © Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary 2011.
