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.
