Measurement and Correlation of the Thermal Conductivity of Methylcyclohexane and Propylcyclohexane from 300 K to 600 K at Pressures to 60 MPa
Richard A. Perkins, Ulf Hammerschmidt, Marcia L. Huber
New experimental data on the thermal conductivity of methylcyclohexane and propylcyclohexane are reported that allow the development of wide-range correlations. These new experimental data, covering a temperature range of 300 K to 600 K and a pressure range of 0.1 to 60 MPa, are used to develop correlations for the thermal conductivity. The experimental data reported here have an uncertainty of less than 1 % for measurements removed from the critical point and for gas at pressures above 1 MPa, which increases to 3 % in the critical region and for gas at low pressures (<1 MPa). Based on the uncertainty of and comparisons with the present data the thermal-conductivity correlations for methylcyclohexane and propylcyclohexane are estimated to have an uncertainty of about 4 % at a 95 % confidence level. The present data include a contribution due to thermal radiation that increases in proportion to temperature cubed up to an estimated value of 2 % to 3 % near 600 K.
