CHAPTER 10

Fluids near Critical Points

This chapter reviews the currently available information concerning the behavior of transport properties near the vapor–liquid critical point of fluids and fluid mixtures. Special attention is devoted to the behavior of the thermal conductivity, which exhibits a pronounced critical enhancement near vapor–liquid critical points. Approximate representations of the critical thermal–conductivity enhancement for practical use are recommended.
