J. Tribol 139(1), 011801 (Jul 26, 2016) (8 pages) Paper No: TRIB-15-1363; doi: 10.1115/1.4033050 History: Received October 06, 2015; Revised January 06, 2016

Measurements are reported for dipentaerythritol hexaisononanoate (DiPEiC9) of pressure–volume–temperature (pVT) response to pressures to 400 MPa and temperatures to 100 °C, and of viscosity at pressures to 700 MPa and temperatures to 90 °C and shear stress to 18 MPa. These data complement the low-shear viscosities published by Harris to pressures to 200 MPa and the compressions by Fandiño et al. to 70 MPa. The improved Yasutomi correlation reproduces all viscosity measurements with accuracy better than the Doolittle free volume and the Bair and Casalini thermodynamic scaling models which require an equation of state (EoS). The interaction parameter for thermodynamic scaling, γ = 3.6, is less than that reported by Harris (γ = 4.2) and the difference is primarily in the choice of EoS. The shear stress at the Newtonian limit, about 6 MPa, is exceptionally large given the high molecular weight of DiPEiC9. The large Newtonian limit is also seen in the oscillatory shear response.
