Knowledge of thermal expansivity can aid in the understanding of both microscopic and macroscopic behavior of clathrate hydrates. Diffraction studies have shown that hydrate volume changes significantly (as much as 1.5% over 50 K) as a function of temperature. It has been demonstrated previously via statistical mechanics that a minor change in hydrate volume (e.g., a 1.5% change in volume or 0.5% change in lattice parameter) can lead to a major change in the predicted hydrate formation pressure… CONTINUE READING
