Abstract

Mixtures of hydrogen (H2) and methane (CH4) are given in many technical applications where accurate thermophysical property data are required for the design and optimization of corresponding processes. This work evaluates the accessibility of the thermal diffusivity a and the Fick diffusion coefficient D 11 in gaseous binary mixtures of H2 and CH4 by dynamic light scattering (DLS). The investigations are performed at temperatures T and pressures p of (293, 333, 363, and 393) K and (5, 10, and 15) MPa with varying CH4 mole fractions xCH4 of (0.05, 0.3, 0.6, and 0.8). For all thermodynamic states investigated, only one hydrodynamic mode was observable by DLS. The assignment of the single related diffusivity to either a, D 11, or a mixed diffusivity D mix representing both a and D 11 is performed by considering D 11 calculated by the Chapman–Enskog kinetic theory, experimental D 11 literature data, a predicted by using two different approaches, and calculations of the so-called Rayleigh ratio. The findings indicate that DLS gives access to a at high xCH4 , D 11 at low xCH4 , and D mix at xCH4 ≈ 0.3. All data are summarized in the form of correlations providing a and D 11 as a function of T, p, and xCH4 .
