I would like to model a natual convection problem with water. If I am not mistaken, I should be able to do this using the buoyantFoam solver and the Janaf & sutherland models, with the following thermoType definition in the thermophysicalProperties dictionary:
hThermo<puremixture<sutherlandtransport<speciether mo<janafthermo<perfectgas>>>>>

I don't have access to the Janaf tables, so was hoping to get the following coefs from the forum.

highCpCoeffs (seven coeffs)
lowCpCoeffs (seven coeffs)

sutherland coefficient As
sutherland Temperature Ts

Any help would be much appreciated.

I'm also interested in natural convection in water. Did you solve the problem?

Best regards.
