Abstract

The densities and kinematic viscosities of the quinary liquid regular system octane(1)-hexane(2)-ethylbenzene(3)-cyclohexane(4)-toluene(5) and two of its quaternary subsystems were measured at 293.15 K and 298.15 K. In addition, the densities and kinematic viscosities of the quinary liquid regular system octane(1)-heptane(2)-ethylbenzene(3)-cyclohexane(4)-toluene(5) and all of its quaternary and ternary subsystems were measured at the same two temperatures. The data collected in the present study were employed in testing the predictive capabilities of some of the most widely used viscosity models for liquid mixtures. Comparison of the predictive capabilities of the various literature models showed indicated that the generalized McAllister three-body collision model gave the lowest deviation from the experimental results.Dept. of Environmental Engineering.
