New absolute measurements of the viscosity of binary mixtures of n-heptane and n-undecane are presented. The measurements, performed in a vibrating-wire instrument, cover the temperature range 295–335 K and pressures up to 75 MPa. The concentrations studied were 40 and 70%, by weight, of n-heptane. The overall uncertainty in the reported viscosity data is estimated to be ±0.5%. A recently extended semiempirical scheme for the prediction of the thermal conductivity of mixtures from the pure components is used to predict successfully both the thermal conductivity and the viscosity of these mixtures, as a function of composition, temperature, and pressure.
