In this work, we have tested the efficiency of two scaling approaches aiming at relating shear viscosity to a single thermodynamic quantity in dense fluids, namely the excess entropy and the thermodynamic scaling methods. Using accurate databases, we have applied these approaches first to a model fluid, the flexible Lennard-Jones chain fluid (from the monomer to the hexadecamer), then to real fluids, such as argon and normal alkanes. To enlarge noticeably the range of thermodynamics conditions… CONTINUE READING
