|Title:||A note on the critical enhancement of transport properties and correlation length of fluids|
|Published:||October 06, 2013|
|Abstract:||The thermal conductivity and viscosity are known to exhibit an enhancement in fluids due to critical fluctuations. We have reviewed procedures proposed in the literature for estimating the correlation length determining the magnitude of these enhancements and present a recommendation to reduce complexity and computation time.|
