The authors obtain, from a thermodynamic basis, evolution equations for the kinetic and the potential contributions to the viscous pressure tensor for a real gas. The macroscopic predictions of the theory, previously checked from kinetic theory for ideal gases up to first order in the density, are also confirmed for real gases, up to second order in the density.
