Written on April 1, 2014 at 8:00 am, by

This Tip of the Month describes simple equations to approximate changes to the properties of crude oil with changing temperature.   Changes in crude oil density and specific heat, or heat capacity, can be estimated from graphs and/or more elaborate computer simulation.  The latter generally requires access to a process simulator and characterization data for theContinue Reading
