Temperature dependence of the transfer coefficients of liquid homologs and their mixtures


A generalized method is proposed for the calculation of the thermal conductivity and viscosity of liquid hydrocarbons and their mixtures belonging to the same homologous series;its use requires no initial information other than the molecular mass.
