The density and temperature dependences of the shear viscosity of liquid potassium and cesium are studied. The stress autocorrelation function is calculated from equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations. Using the Green-Kubo formula, the shear viscosity is obtained. Interionic interactions are calculated by Fiolhais potential and are validated by comparison between simulation and experimental data along the liquid-gas coexistence curve for K and Cs. For both metals, three isochors and one isotherm are investigated. The recently proposed relation in [Phys. Rev. B 93, 214203 (2016)] is tested in the cases of K and Cs and it appears that this function reproduces qualitatively and quantitatively well the behavior of each element.
