GasEvolutionModel Methods

The GasEvolutionModel type exposes the following members.

Methods


  Name Description
Public method Equals(System.Object)
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected method EvaluateSuccessOfParameterReads
This is called after all parameter reads are done, in a late bound model execution. It forms and throws a MissingParameterException with an appropriate messasge if any of the parameter reads failed.
(Inherited from EmissionModel.)
Protected method Finalize
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public method GasEvolution
This model is used to calculate the emissions associated with the generation of a non-condensable gas as the result of a chemical reaction. The model assumes that the gas is exposed to the VOC, becomes saturated with the VOC vapor at the exit temperature, and leaves the system. The model also assumes that the system pressure is 760 mmHg, atmospheric pressure. This model is identical to the Gas Sweep model, except that the non-condensable sweep gas (usually nitrogen) is replaced in this model by a non-condensable gas generated in situ. It is important to note that if the generated gas is itself a VOS, non-VOS or TVOS, then the emission of this gas must be accounted for by a separate model, usually the Mass Balance model.

For example, if n-butyllithium is used in a chemical reaction and generates butane gas as a byproduct, the evolution of butane gas causes emissions of the VOC present in the system. These emissions can be modeled by the Gas Evolution model (to account for the emission of the VOC vapor which saturates the butane gas) and the Mass Balance model (to account for the emission of the VOC butane).

Public method GetHashCode
Serves as the default hash function.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected method GetSystemPressure
Gets the system pressure from the parameters hashtable. It may be stored under the PN.SystemPressure_P or failing that, the PN.FinalPressure_P key.
(Inherited from EmissionModel.)
Public method GetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone
Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected method PrepareToReadLateBoundParameters
Performs initial bookkeeping in support of determining if an error occurred while reading late-bound parameters for an emissions model.
(Inherited from EmissionModel.)
Public method Process
One-size-fits-all API for all Emission Models, so that the Emissions Service can run an emission model that it has never seen before.

In order to successfully call the Gas Evolution model on this API, the parameters hashtable must include the following entries (see the GasEvolution(...) method for details):

"MolesOfGasEvolved", "SystemPressure" and "ControlTemperature". If there is no entry under "SystemPressure", then this method looks for entries under "InitialPressure" and "FinalPressure" and uses their average.

Protected method ReportProcessCall
Creates a string that reports the process call, logging it to Trace.
(Inherited from EmissionModel.)
Public method ToString
Returns a string that represents the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Protected method TryToRead(Double%, String, Hashtable)
Attempts to read a parameter by name from the late-bound parameters list, providing an error message if the parameter is missing.
(Inherited from EmissionModel.)
Protected method TryToRead(Hashtable%, String, Hashtable)
Attempts to read a parameter by name from the late-bound parameters list, providing an error message if the parameter is missing.
(Inherited from EmissionModel.)
Protected method TryToRead(Mixture%, String, Hashtable)
Attempts to read a parameter by name from the late-bound parameters list, providing an error message if the parameter is missing.
(Inherited from EmissionModel.)
