Abstract

A new wide-ranging correlation for the thermal conductivity of xenon based on the most recent theoretical calculations and critically evaluated experimental data, is presented. The correlation is designed to be used with a recently published equation of state, and it is valid from the triple point temperature to 606 K and pressures up to 400 MPa. The estimated uncertainty in the range of validity of the correlation varies depending on the temperature and pressure, from 0.2 % in the dilute-gas range, to 2.6 %. The correlation behaves in a physically reasonable manner when extrapolated up to 1700 K, however care should be taken when using the correlation outside of the validated range.
