1. VISCOTUBE Viscosity Calculation (ASTM D341)


This should be used with the VISCOTUBE to accurately calculate Viscosities at other temperatures
Input Ball size mm
Ball fall time seconds
Oil temperature °C
Density Kg/L
Viscosity Index (engine oil is 95)
Output Viscosity cSt @ 40, 50 and 100°C
Centistokes / Second cSt per Second of ball fall time
If you do not know the Viscosity Index you can calculate it using the Viscosity Index worksheet

2. Viscosity Index (ASTM 2270)


This will calculate the Viscosity Index from known values at 40°C and 100°C
Input Viscosity at 40°C cSt @ 40°C
Viscosity at 100°C cSt @ 100°C
Output Viscosity Index VI

3. Viscosity at any temperature (ASTM D341)


This will calculate the Viscosity at X°C from known viscosities at any two other temperatures (A&B)
Input Viscosity at Temperature A cSt @ Temp A°C
Temperature A °C
Viscosity at Temperature B cSt @ Temp B°C
Temperature B °C
Desired value for X °C
Output Viscosity at X°C cSt @ X°C

4. Viscosity Temperature Table (ASTM D341)


This will calculate the Viscosities from 10°C in steps of 0.1°C from known values A & B°C
Input Viscosity at Temperature A cSt @ Temp A°C
Viscosity at Temperature B cSt @ Temp B°C
Output Viscosity in steps of 0.1°C cSt @ X°C

5. Viscosity at 40 & 100°C from Viscosity at any other temperatures (ASTM D341)
This will calculate the viscosity at standard temperatures from Viscosity at one Temperature & VI
Input Oil temperature (X) °C
Oil viscosity at temperature X°C cSt @ X°C
Viscosity Index VI
Output Viscosity at 40°C cSt @ 40°C
Viscosity at 100C cSt @ 100°C
