Viscoelastic transition measurements of several lubricants by volume dilatometry to pressures of 1.75 GPa, dielectric transitions at atmospheric pressure on five fluids in a frequency range of 0.2 to 500 kHz and on two fluids in the same frequency range to pressures of 0.55 GPa are reported. Lines of constant rate dilatometry transition, constant rate dielectric transition and constant viscosity are shown to be essentially parallel on a temperature-pressure diagram.
