Liquid Phase Stability via Global Optimization Academic Article Conference Paper uri icon


  • In this work, the Penalty Stretched Simulated Annealing Method and the Multilocal Branch and Bound method were applied to identify the stationary points of the tangent plane distance function defined for the Gibbs energy. The classic excess Gibbs energy Non Random Two Liquid model was used for these studies in several multicomponent mixtures, for which specific numerical difficulties were shown. The preliminary results obtained by applying the methodology developed in this work were satisfactory.
