    The intranuclear cascade model and the hydrodynamical approach are considered with respect to their relation to macroscopic transport properties of nuclear matter. We indicate how the Enskog prescription together with a properly chosen mean-field potential corresponding to the compressional part of the equation of state can be used to obtain a more realistic description of the collision dynamics in high-energy nucleus-nucleus reactions. Resulting expressions for the thermal part of the equation of state, viscosity and heat conductivity coefficients are given.
