Abstract

Viscosity and thermal conductivity coefficients for binary, ternary, and quaternary n-alkane mixtures are predicted over extended ranges of temperature and pressure, in excellent agreement with experiment, by extension of a method recently described for the correlation of n-alkane transport coefficients. The outstanding advantage of this approach is that there are no adjustable parameters. Furthermore, in contrast with other mixture viscosity equations, this scheme does not require experimental viscosity coefficient data for the pure components under the same conditions of temperature and pressure.
