On the viscosity of liquid metals

А. V. Ryabina, V. G. Shevchenko

ABSTRACT:

The thermodynamic similarity method developed by Chapman, using which it is possible to calculate the dynamic viscosity of liquid without resort to experiment, has been considered. Comparison of the calculated and experimentally determined values of interatomic distances revealed their satisfactory fit. Examples of the calculation are given. The calculated data are listed in an integrated table.

KEY WORDS:

reduced viscosity, dynamic viscosity, interatomic distances, density of liquid metals
