Fluid physical properties (air and seawater)

(In construction)

The fluid physical properties modeled in FRyDoM are listed in the following table

Name Symbol Unit
Temperature \(T\) degree Celcius
Density \(\rho\) kg/m^3
Dynamic viscosity \(\mu\) Pa.s
Kinematic viscosity \(\nu\) m^2/s
Salinity \(S_A\) g/kg
Pressure \(p\) MPa

It is possible to get the seawater physical properties, for different temperatures and salinity, in the ITTC recommended procedures [ITTC].
