Abstract

This paper presents new wide-ranging correlations for the viscosity and thermal conductivity of 1-hexene based on critically evaluated experimental data. The viscosity correlation is valid from the triple point to 580 K and up to 245 MPa pressure, while the thermal conductivity is valid from the triple point to 620 K and 200 MPa pressure. Both correlations are designed to be used with a recently published equation of state that extends from 140 K to 535 K, at pressures up to 245 MPa. The estimated uncertainty at a 95% confidence level is 2% for the viscosity of low-density gas (pressures below 0.5 MPa), and 4.8% over the full range of application. The thermal conductivity of the low-density gas has an estimated uncertainty of 3%, and 4% over the full range of application.
