Paper Title:
Viscosity of Three Biodiesel Fuels: Experimental Data vs. Prediction Models
  Abstract

In this paper we study the predictive capacity of three methods to compute biodiesel viscosity and their behavior in different ranges of temperature (those able to be measured in laboratory and those of interest in the study of atomization and combustion) and we compare the results with the viscosity data obtained in our laboratory for three biodiesel from different feedstock. We also compare our experimental viscosity values with literature data in the same range of temperature to analyze differences in the tendency of evolution of this property with temperature.
