Study of High-Pressure Physical Properties of Marine Heavy Oil


Article Preview

This paper obtains the formula for calculating fuel dynamic viscosity based on the Barus formula and Eying formula from both macroscopic and microscopic perspectives, studies the mathematical model of fuel bulk modulus changing with temperature and pressure based on equation of state for gases and solids, and computes the fitting formula and correlation coefficients of dynamic viscosity and bulk modulus based on IFO 180 test data. The result indicates that the calculation models for fuel dynamic viscosity and bulk modulus are effective.
