R1234ze(Z) provides thermodynamic property data for HFO-1234ze(Z) (cis 1,3,3,3-tetrafluoropropene, CAS# 29118-25-0, MW 114.04 g/gmole).  The thermodynamic property data are obtained from the equation of state published in:


"A Fundamental Equation of State for cis-1,3,3,3-tetrafluoropropene(R-1234ze(Z))"

The reference state h=200 kJ/kg and s=1.0 kJ/kg-K at 273.15 K for saturated liquid.


The properties are valid for temperatures between 273 K and 430 K for pressures up to 6 MPa.


Viscosity and thermal conductivity have been estimated using a corresponding states approach as suggested in:


Klein, S.A., McLinden, M.O., and Laesecke , A., "An improved extended corresponding states method for estimation of viscosity of pure refrigerants and mixtures",  Int. J. of Refrigeration, 20, pp. 208-217, 1997


McLinden et al., "An extended corresponding states model for the thermal conductivity of refrigerants and refrigerant mixtures",

Int. J. of Refrigeration, 23, pp. 43-63, 2000


R236fa was used as the reference fluid.  The estimated transport properties should be applicable for the range in which the equation of state is valid.


Surface tension data are provided with a correlation from Chieko Kondou, et al., Internation Journal of Refrigeration, Vol. 53, (2015) pp. 80-89.
