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.
