    An estimation of the properties of helium is carried out on the basis of a literature survey. The ranges of pressure and temperature chosen are applicable to helium-cooled atomic reactor design. A brief outline of the theory for the properties is incorporated, and comparisons of the recommended data with the data calculated from intermolecular potential functions are presented.
