A Graphical Method for Estimating Physical Characteristics of Ternary Blends of Lubricating Oil Base Stocks 630432

A graphical method for estimating the viscosity and other physical characteristics of three component blends of lubricating oil base stocks is presented. The method utilizes triangular coordinate paper in which “families” of straight lines show the variation of viscosity and other physical characteristics of three-component systems with composition. A modification of the principles is used to construct a viscosity index improver blending chart.
