Title: An Equation of State and Compendium of Thermophysical Properties of Liquid Tin, a Prospective Plasma-Facing Material

Abstract

In this work we collect and summarize a variety of thermophysical properties of liquid tin, which is a prospecive plasma-facing material in fusion reactors. These include the thermodynamic properties density, specific heat, sound spead, and vapor pressure; transport properties such as thermal con- ductivity, viscosity, and surface tension; and hydrogen isotope solubility and diffusivity. The thermodyamic property data are used to fit an equation of state that accurately describes these, and which has been implemented in MELCOR for fusion in order to model systems featuring liquid tin PFCs and coolant loops. Few data on hydrogen solubility could be found, and these differ by some orders of magnitude; diffusivity appears not to have been measured precisely and for subsequent analyses theoretical estimates will have to be relied upon.
