A method is presented for a relatively accurate, noniterative, computationally efficient calculation of high-pressure fluid-mixture equations of state, especially targeted to gas turbines and rocket engines. Pressures above 1 bar and temperatures above 100 K are addressed. The method is based on curve fitting an effective reference state relative to departure functions formed using the Peng-Robinson cubic state equation. Fit parameters for H_2, O_2, N_2, propane, methane, n-heptane, and methanol are given.
