This book describes the most reliable methods for
evaluating the transport properties of pure gases and fluid mixtures,
such as viscosity, thermal conductivity and diffusion. The authors place
particular emphasis on recent theoretical advances in our understanding
of fluid transport properties in all the different regions of temperature
and pressure. In addition to the important theoretical tools, the authors
cover the different methods of data representation, and they follow
this with a section that demonstrates the application of selected models
in a range of circumstances. They then offer case studies of transport
property analysis for real fluids, and the book concludes with a discussion
of various international data banks and prediction packages. Advanced
students of kinetic theory, as well as engineers and scientists involved
with the design of process equipment or the interpretation of measurements
of fluid transport properties, will find this book indispensable.
