The Thiele hard sphere equation of state is an equation of state for a hard sphere fluid developed by Thiele in 1963 [1]. The equation provides a better approximation of the repulsive forces between molecules than the Van der Waals repulsive term. The equation is given below:

 Z_{hs} = \frac{p_{hs}V_m}{RT} = \frac{1 - \eta^3}{(1-\eta)^4} = \frac{1 + \eta + \eta^2}{(1-\eta)^3} ,


Z_{hs} is the compressibility factor of the hard sphere fluid;
p_{hs} is the pressure of the fluid;
V_m is the molar volume of the fluid;
T is the absolute temperature of the fluid;
R is the gas constant; and
\eta is the packing fraction of the fluid.

In terms of accuracy, the Thiele equation is superseded by the Carnahan-Starling equation of state
