An algorithm for computing nonflow gas processes is based on the Benedict-Webb-Rubin equation of state and a thermal time constant to describe heat transport. Specific results are presented for an accumulator charged with nitrogen operating in the range 60 to 150 atmospheres and 200 to 330°K. The computer results compare favorably with NBS nitrogen property data and with experimental measurements for an expansion process and a sinusoidal cycle.
