Abstract

There has been substantial interest in determining the thermo-physical properties of hydrocarbon fluids. We have used three different experimental techniques: ultrasonic interferometry to determine the velocity of compressional wave, differential scanning calorimetry to determine the specific heat and the Anton Paar density meter to determine the density of crude oil sample over a wide range of temperatures varying from 20 to 70 °C. These data are used in thermodynamic relations to evaluate the specific heat ratio, the Grüneisen parameter, the Debye temperature and the long wavelength limit of the structure factor. The packing fraction obtained for crude oil is found to be closer to the values of other dense liquid fluids.
