Kinematic viscosity at 100 C, in the range 27 - 34 mm2
Named for their port location, delivery basis and viscosity levels, as measured by kinematic viscosity in centistokes (CST), the new assessments are:
The kinematic viscosity of all samples, at temperatures of 40 and 100[degrees]C, was measured according to standard LST EN ISO 3104+AC: 2000.
The biodiesel parameters considered for determining the influence of the ultrasonic irradiation process were: speed of sound through the medium, density, isentropic bulk modulus and kinematic viscosity.
2]/[epsilon] where P is the air pressure, [mu] the kinematic viscosity of the air, A the turbulent viscosity of the air, Cu the constant of k--[epsilon] model, [epsilon] the turbulent dissipation rate of air, and k the dissipation rate of turbulent kinetic energy of air.
This assumption implies that fluid properties such as density p and kinematic viscosity v are constant throughout the flow field.
However, while ASTM D4486 Standard Test Method for Kinematic Viscosity of Volatile and Reactive Liquids does cover sealed viscometers, it does not include the vapor buoyancy correction (68) either.
20] alpha-olefins having a kinematic viscosity at 100[degrees]C of 3 to 3,000 cSt and a Mw/Mn of less than 4.
The dynamic viscosity was determined by the density of the resin, while the kinematic viscosity was the average of the two acceptable determined values.
