Abstract

XSEOS is an educational software model that implements several excess Gibbs free energy models and equations of state and has been developed for educational use. XSEOS is an expandable platform with open source codes that is expected to contribute to the exchange of experiences in the teaching of chemical engineering thermodynamics. The major goal of XSEOS is to provide an environment where students can develop and test calculation procedures and compare the results of different models. XSEOS has a function named uniquac that takes the universal gas constant, temperature, mole fractions, and UNIQUAC parameters as inputs to compute the logarithms of activity coefficients as outputs. XSEOS is provided with the examples that illustrate calculations such as the boiling point of pure substances, bubble points of mixtures, chemical equilibrium, speed of sound, and residual and excess properties.
