|Title:||Viscosity of H20 in the Critical Region|
|Published:||April 15, 2009|
|Abstract:||It has been well established that thermodynamic and transport properties of fluids exhibit singular behavior near the critical point. In this paper we review the theoretical predictions for the enhancement of the viscosity near the critical point. It is then shown how these predictions can be used to obtain a representative equation for the viscosity of H2O in the critical region.|
