Abstract

The viscosities and densities of ten binary subsystems of the quinary system: heptane, octane, cyclohexane, toluene, and ethylbenzene were measured and reported over the entire composition range at 293.15, 298.15, 308.15, and 313.15 K. In addition, the viscosities and densities of the binary and ternary subsystems of the quinary system: hexane, octane, cyclohexane, toluene, and ethylbenzene were measured and reported at 293.15 and 298.15 K. The experimental data obtained during the course of the study were employed to test the predictive capabilities of five viscosity models available in the literature; viz., the generalized McAllister model, the pseudo-binary McAllister model, The group contribution GC-UNIMOD model, the generalized corresponding state principle model (GCSP), and the Allan and Teja correlation. These models were selected since they are widely used in the literature. The results of testing indicated that the generalized McAllister model predicted the experimental data much better than the other models.Dept. of Environmental Engineering.
