John M. Campbell & Company proudly announces Dr. Mahmood Moshfeghian’s paper publication, “Correlation for Natural Gas Heat Capacity Developed”, in Oil & Gas Journal. The paper highlights Moshfeghian’s extensive investigation into heat capacity as a function of temperature, pressure, and composition and showcases full color graphs of both ideal gas heat capacities of hydrocarbons and non-hydrocarbons, as well as heat capacities for several gas relative densities.
“Correlation for Natural Gas Heat Capacity Developed” is one of many technical papers published by Dr. Moshfeghian on thermodynamic properties as it pertains to Process Engineering. He also authors most of Campbell’s Tip of the Months and develops most of their technical software as well.
“I chose to work on this topic because there is not a simple correlation to estimate the natural gas heat capacity at the actual condition. We can overcome this deficiency by developing a generalized correlation for wide ranges of pressure, temperature and relative density. As a result of this paper, we have expanded Figure 8.3 in Volume 1 of JMC Gas Conditioning and Processing for separate natural gases with relative density of 0.6 to 0.8 with the increment of 0.05. In each of these cases, the dense phase and two phase region was spotted” commented Dr. Moshfeghian.
