CHAPTER 1

Acoustic Techniques for Measuring Transport Properties of Gases

The chapter describes the development, over the last fifteen years, of acoustic resonance techniques for the measurement of three transport properties of fluids under a variety of conditions. In each case the design of the resonator employed is guided by theory to make the instrument particularly sensitive to the loss process in which the transport property is involved. The viscosity of gases, for which the technique is most advanced is described in detail followed by shorter expositions of the application to the thermal conductivity and bulk viscosity near the vapor–liquid critical point.
