How is RMV calculated?

Post by acreichman »

Hello everybody,

I was just wondering about RMV calculations. When figuring out the volume of gas consumed, does MacDive assume the gases are ideal or does it take into account compressibility issues? A change from 230 bar to 200 bar isn't the same volume change as it would be from 80 bar to 50 bar, even though both are 30 bar. I know it's not that big of a difference but I was wondering if MacDive did those calculations automatically.

That's not considered, no.
