This report is an update of the internal SCK•CEN report IR-18 "Database of thermal properties for the melted lead-bismuth eutectic" issued in 2002. This compilation takes into account larger amount of original sources and partially work performed in the framework of the preparation of a "zero" version of the HLMC Handbook by the OECD/NEA Working Group on LBE Technology. An analysis is performed of the previous recommendations using some general physical laws and referencing to the properties of lead and bismuth. The updated and extended version of the molten LBE thermal properties database is developed and the correlations are proposed for the design calculations of ADS MYRRHA.
