Abstract: Similar to previous MatLab Graphical User Interfaces (GUI’s) developed to systematically check the consistency of LLE data correlation results, GMcal_TieLinesLL(v.2.2) [], or Boundaries_LL_NRTL [] for the analysis of the miscibility boundaries that the NRTL model present, this third GUI, GMcal_TieLinesVL(new version: v.2), allows the analysis of experimental and calculated (isobaric or isothermal) vapor-liquid data for binary and ternary systems, in the sense presented in the following papers, to detect the necessity of considering larger dependences (of temperature or pressure, respectively) in the binary interaction parameters of the model used (e.g. NRTL model) and also to check the consistency of VLE data correlation results through the topological information contained in the Gibbs energy of mixing function: * Procedure for the correlation of normal appearance VLE data, where the classical models dramatically fail with no apparent reason. Fluid Phase Equilibria. 2019, 493, 88-101. DOI: * The unavoidable necessity of considering temperature dependence of the liquid Gibbs energy of mixing for certain VLE data correlations.

Fluid Phase Equilibria. 2017, 433, 243-252 ( This analysis allows researchers involved in the correlation of experimental vapor-liquid equilibrium data, to visualize the behavior of the experimental data and also the consistency and quality of the results obtained in the correlation process.
