We use a model combining, in a consistent way, orbital-free density functional theory (OF-DFT) and molecular dynamics (MD), to compute the thermodynamical, structural and dynamical properties of Fe and Au plasmas at conditions relevant to astrophysics and inertial confinement fusion (ICF). The newly developed parallel numerical scheme presented here allows to propagate hundreds of particles and to obtain accurate transport properties. This allows us to investigate the validity of the commonly used one-component plasma (OCP) model in predicting the pair correlation, the diffusion and viscosity coefficients for these two high-temperature high-density plasmas.
