Abstract: All reliable experimental data available relating to the viscosity and thermal conductance of water has been collected and turned into the current temperature scale and a set of units. There are four groups of data collected; liquid at ambient pressure, the rest of the liquid phase, the vapor phase, and the super-critical region. For each data point collected, a density was calculated theoretically. Viscosity was measured in the range of temperatures from 238 to 1346 K with pressures to 346 MPa, and the thermal conductance was measured with the transient hot wire method, along with other methods where appropriate. These measurements were obtained in the range of temperatures from 256 to 1191 K with pressures to 785 MPa.
