Viscosity correlations for jojoba oil blends with biodiesel and petroleum diesel


​In this study, the effect of temperature and mixture composition on viscosity of Jojoba oil-Biodiesel (JO-BD) and Jojoba oil-Diesel (JO-PD) blends are investigated. Moreover, the relationship between the viscosity and the specific gravity of the blends is studied. Experimental viscosity data for the temperature range between 20°C and 80°C are used. The results show that the viscosity–temperature dependency can be well correlated by Vogel model for the viscosity–temperature relation. Also, a method that could estimate the blends viscosity from the specific gravity data is established.
