An Evaluation of the PNM Dense Gas Transport Theory
The current level of theoretical understanding of transport phenomena in dense media in terms of predictive ability is not clearly defined. This paper presents a partial evaluation of one type of such theory, that due to Prigogine and Nicolis and Misguich. The representation of the potential terms is qualitatively correct, but the neglect of the kinetic terms makes a precise comparison impossible. The Enskog hard sphere representation does as well or better than the more sophisticated version.
