Abstract : The project themis contract DAAA13-68-C-0033 effort was directed toward the experimental determination of the thermophysical properties of fluids. Interpretation of these experiments and the search for theoretical and empirical schemes for predicting and correlating the results were also a major part of the effort. The work includes the study of thermal accommodation of gases on clean metal surfaces; small angle x-ray scattering by suspensions and gases in the vapor-liquid critical region; shock tube studies of plasma systems dilute in charged particles; pressure-volume-temperature-composition studies of liquids; and properties of polyatomic gases.
