The densities and viscosities of the quinary regular liquid system: Octane(1)-Hepatne(2)-Ethylbenzene(3)-Cyclohexane(4)-Toluene(5) and its corresponding quaternary and ternary subsystems have been measured at 308.15 and 313.15K over the entire composition range. Furthermore, the viscosities and densities of the three quaternary subsystems belonging to the quinary system: Octane-Hexane-Ethylbenzene-Cyclohexane-Toluene were measured at 293.15 and 298.15 K. The experimental data obtained in this study were used to test the predictive capability of some literature viscosity models for liquid mixtures. These models are: the generalized McAllister three-body interaction model, pseudo-binary McAllister, the generalized Corresponding states principle (GCSP) model, the modified generalized Corresponding states principle (MGCSP), the GC-UNIMOD model, and the Allan and Teja correlation. Results of testing the models show that the generalized McAllister three-body interaction model is superior to other models.Dept. of Environmental Engineering.
