Viscosity of Cryogenic Liquid Mixtures (Including LNG) from Corresponding States Methods
In view of the difficulties that still remain in the rigorous kinetic theory for liquids, the principle of corresponding states provides the most useful approach for predicting liquid transport properties. For pure, simple liquids (Ar, Kr, Xe, CH4) the principle can be derived from statistical mechanics [1,2] and has been shown to be accurately obeyed [2,3]. More recently, a conformai solution theory has been proposed [4,5] for mixtures of such simple liquids and gives good results for viscosity and thermal conductivity.
