Int J Thermophys (2012) 33:220-234


The correlation is valid for temperatures between 130 K and 450 K for pressures less than 5 MPa.


The reference state for which the specific enthalpy is 200 kJ/kg and entropy is 1 kJ/kg-K is saturated liquid at 0C.


Transport properties are provided using correlations given in:
