Abstract

This paper presents a new wide-ranging correlation for the viscosity of xenon based on the most recent theoretical calculations and critically evaluated experimental data. The correlation is designed to be used with an existing equation of state, and it is valid from the triple point to 750 K, at pressures up to 86 MPa. The estimated uncertainty varies depending on the temperature and pressure, from 0.2 % in the dilute-gas range to 3.6 %. The correlation behaves in a physically reasonable manner when extrapolated to 200 MPa, however care should be taken when using the correlations outside of the validated range.
