Models and Equations for Atomic Transport Coefficients of Liquid Metals: Viscosity and Self-Diffusivity
The current article presented appropriate models using a new parameter recently introduced by the authors to accurately predict the atomic transport coefficients, i.e. viscosity and self-diffusivity, of liquid metallic elements at their melting points. The models for both the meltingpoint viscosity and self-diffusivity are expressed in terms of well-known physical quantities; atomic mass, atomic volume, melting point, melting-point surface tension, and the new parameter T ξ . Moreover, the authors derived expressions for the temperature dependence of the atomic transport coefficients of liquid metallic elements in terms of melting point temperature. These two models give very good agreement with experimental data for various metallic liquids. Using the models, self-diffusivities were predicted for liquid aluminum, calcium, and magnesium.
