KINEMATICVISCOSITY

 

The KINEMATICVISCOSITY function returns the kinematic viscosity for the specified fluid defined as

 

nu = visc / rho

 

where

visc is the viscosity

rho is the density

 

The units of kinematic viscosity are m^2/sec or ft^2/hr depending on whether EES is configured in SI units or English units.

 

Examples:

 

$UnitSystem SI C kPa mass

nu_1=KinematicViscosity(Air,T=100 [C], P=100 [kPa])

nu_2=KinematicViscosity(Steam,T=100 [C],x=0)

nu_3=KinematicViscosity(Dowtherm_A,T=25 [C])

 

{Solution:

nu_1=0.00002336 [m^2/s]

nu_2=2.941E-07 [m^2/s]

nu_3=0.0000399 [m^2/s]

}
