To develop reliable models for the densities and viscosities of biodiesel fuel, reliable data for the pure fatty acid esters are required. Densities and viscosities were measured for seven ethyl esters and eight methyl esters, at atmospheric pressure and temperatures from (273.15 to 363.15) K. A critical assessment of the measured data against the data previously available in the literature was carried out. It is shown that the data here reported presents deviations of less than 0.15 % for… CONTINUE READING
