We have investigated a number of structural, thermodynamic and atomic transport properties of various liquid noble and transition metals. The underlying theory combines a simple form of the N-body potential and the thermodynamically self-consistent variational modified hypernetted chain (VMHNC) theory of liquid. The static structure factors calculated by using the VMHNC resemble, as expected, the hard sphere (HS) values. Consequently the HS model is used to calculate thermodynamic properties, viz. the specific heat, entropy, isothermal compressibility and the shear viscosity of liquid Ni, Cu, Ag, and Au. The results are in reasonable accord with the experimental values.
