METHOD FOR PREDICTING THE VOLUME INCREASE OF FUEL HANDLING RUBBERS IN COMPLEX FUEL BLENDS
The use of toluene/isooctane/alcohol blends to simulate the swelling behavior of rubbers in alcohol blends has been reported recently. The Hildebrand blending rule was used to calculate the partial solubility parameters for a wide compositional range of toluene/isooctane/alcohol blends. Appropriate plots were prepared which define the swelling characteristics of fuel handling rubbers as a function of these parameters. These swell contours provide a method for predicting the volume increase of rubbers in complex fuels whose partial solubility parameters have been calculated.
