Measurement and Correlation of the Thermal Conductivity of trans-1-Chloro-3,3,3-trifluoropropene (R1233zd(E))



Richard A. Perkins, Marcia L. Huber, Marc J. Assael


New experimental data on the thermal conductivity of trans-1-chloro-3,3,3-trifluoropropene (R1233zd(E)) are reported that allow the development of wide-range correlations. These new experimental data, covering a temperature range of 204 K to 453 K at pressures from 0.1 MPa to 67 MPa, are used to develop correlations for the thermal conductivity. The experimental data reported here have an uncertainty of (1 - 1.5) % for liquid measurements and for gas at pressures above 1 MPa, increasing to (3 - 4) % for gas at low pressures (less than 1 MPa) and near the gas-liquid critical point. Based on the uncertainty of and comparisons with the present data, the thermal-conductivity correlation for R1233zd(E) is estimated to have a relative expanded uncertainty ranging at a 95 % confidence level from 1 % to 4 % depending on the temperature and pressure, with larger uncertainties in the critical region.
