Models for Viscosity, Thermal Conductivity, and Surface Tension of Selected Pure Fluids as Implemented in REFPROP v10.0

Published

Author(s)

Marcia L. Huber

Abstract

We describe models for the viscosity, thermal conductivity, and surface tension for selected fluids implemented in version 10.0 of the NIST computer program REFPROP. These fluids do not presently have published reference fluid quality models in the open literature, so we provide preliminary models based on available data as an interim measure to allow calculations of these properties. Comparisons with available experimental data are given.
