Abstract:

The thermal conductivity of anhydrous hydrogen chloride was studied in a precision coaxial cylinder apparatus at temperatures between -75 and 65C, and pressures from 40 to 100 bar. The experimental results were correlated by means of the unique relationship between the density of a fluid and its thermal conductivity. A simple third order polynomial expression between these quantities was derived which not only satisfactorily correlated the experimental results, but may also be used for the prediction of the thermal conductivity over a limited range of density outside that covered by the experiments. Information derived from this investigation is summarized in three diagrams showing, respectively, the isotherms and isobars of the thermal conductivity, and the relation between the density and the thermal conductivity. Smoothed values of the thermal conductivity at integral values of pressure and temperature are presented in a table and are compared with previously published data derived from an application of the corresponding state principle.
