Calculation of the thermal conductivity of dense real gases and their mixtures

  • 26 Accesses


A procedure is proposed for calculating the thermal-conductivity coefficients of compressed gases and their mixtures; the real first density correction is introduced into the Enskog equation with allowance for the contribution of the internal degrees of freedom of the molecules.
