Accurate knowledge of physical properties and phase equilibria is crucial for the conceptual and detailed design, simulation and optimization of industrial processes. The unprecedented increase of computing power over the last decades and the development of new theoretical and computational methods and algorithms allow us today to calculate and model phenomena at the microscopic (molecular) level and predict macroscopic properties of complex chemical and physical systems. Research work in the Molecular Thermodynamics and Simulation Laboratory of TAMUQ focuses on the development and implementation of novel hierarchical methods and algorithms for the computer modelling and calculation of complex fluid properties at the molecular, mesoscopic and macroscopic levels. In this presentation, recent projects related primarily to sub-surface applications will be discussed.
