Abstract

A novel probabilistic method for the representation of the molecular components of heavy resid feedstocks is introduced. The method describes resid molecule “attributes” in terms of quantitative probability density functions, optimized by comparison of the properties of Monte Carlo-constructed molecules with experimental measurements. Both molecular distributions and averages are provided.
