Molar Volume#

Molar Volume = CONSTANT <integer> <float> [L3/mole]

Description / Usage#

This card is referred when molar based equilibrium models are used on the boundaries, such as VL_POLY. The float value specified is necessary for converting mass fractions to mole fractions.


Model for converting mass to mole fractions.

  • <integer> - species number

  • <float> - molar volume of the species. [L3/mole]


An example usage for this card:

Molar Volume = CONSTANT 0 1.

Technical Discussion#

The same conversion from mass fraction to mole fraction can be obtained through specification of the Molecular Weight and Specific Volume. The redundancy, which will be allowed to remain, arose through simultaneous additions to the code by developers working on different projects.
