Thermal Calculations with Tacite

Author : D. Legendre

The TACITE code is an industrial code which is intended to simulate transient multiphase flows of hydrocarbon mixtures in pipelines networks (steady states as well as transient flows). Its development results from the collaboration between  IFP (Institut Français du Pétrole), TOTAL and ELF with the assistance of the "Institut de Mécanique des Fluides de Toulouse" (IMFT) for the physical modelling, the "Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon (ENSL) for the numerical scheme, and the "Université de Marseille" for the thermodynamic package.
Objective :  The Tacite 4.099 version was installed during MCIP A last year and MCIP C this year. A manual is avalaible at http://www.enseeiht.fr/travaux/CD9900/travaux/optmfn/micp/manuals/manuals.htm . The aim of this task is to improve this manual and to perform new calculations with complex thermal conditions.
