In this methodology, the bubble T is considered a differential equation and together with the Rayleigh equation, which is a system of differential equations that determines the residual composition of a liquid mixture to be distilled, are solved using the Finite Difference Method. &nbsp;For this purpose, the new methodology will be applied to the ternary systems ethyl ether / methanol / 1-butanol and ethanol / 2-methyl 2-propanol / methylcyclohexane. The fugacity coefficient of the vapor phase was calculated using the Virial equation (truncated in the second coefficient), and the activity coefficient of the liquid phase, using the NRTL, UNIQUAC and UNIFAC models. The results showed the potential of the new methodology compared to conventional approaches.</em></p> </td> </tr> </tbody> </table>}, number={5}, journal={The Journal of Engineering and Exact Sciences}, author={Silva, Josemar Pereira da and Vianna Neto, Márcio Ribeiro and Almeida, Gustavo Matheus and Oliveira, Éder Domingues de}, year={2020}, month={Dec.}, pages={0770–0776} }
