Abstract

This paper presents new wide-ranging correlations for the viscosity and thermal conductivity of ethyl fluoride (R161) based on critically evaluated experimental data. The correlations are designed to be used with a recently published equation of state that is valid from 130 K to 450 K, at pressures up to 100 MPa. The estimated uncertainty at a 95% confidence level is 2% for the viscosity of low-density gas (pressures below 0.5 MPa), and 3% for the viscosity of the liquid over the temperature range from 243 K to 363 K at pressures up to 30 MPa. The estimated uncertainty is 3% for the thermal conductivity of the low-density gas, and 3% for the liquid over the temperature range from 234 K to 374 K at pressures up to 20 MPa. Both correlations may be used over the full range of the equation of state, but the uncertainties will be larger, especially in the critical region.
