Equation of state of hard-sphere fluid in nanoporous media

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The present work is devoted to the study of fluid equations of state in nanoporous media. The modelling is carried out in the framework of the molecular dynamics method using the potential of hard spheres. The dependences of the compressibility factor on packing fraction are studied for various characteristic pore sizes, porosities, and types of grains packing of a porous medium. It is shown that for all cases considered, deviations of the obtained equations of state from the Carnahan-Starling equation of state are insignificant. These deviations may be due to the presence of restricted zones in a porous medium inaccessible to fluid molecules that is also discussed in the work.
