compressible thermophysical model for water

Can anyone suggest me a compressible thermophysical model (and possibly with temperature-dependent viscosity), which I can use for water which I can use with chtMultiRegionSimpleFoam?
Does anyone have and example?

Thank you!

I would suggest tait eqn of state to model compressibility in water. It is quite easy to implement in openfoam.
