Fluid properties of a diesel exhaust

  1. Jun 4, 2008 #1

    Anyone know where I can get fluid properties (specifically kinematic viscosity) of the combustion exhaust form a diesel generator (i am designing an exhaust system and I need to calculate fluid flows). I am not sure the exact chemical makeup of the diesel fuel. An estimation would be fine.

    ok, can I do it like this..

    diesel is a hydrocarbon...can I just base the fluid properties of the largest constituent? That is, assume the exhaust is 100% of the predominant gas since Its easier to find properties of specific gases at higher temperatures, lets say CO or N2?

    CO2 is probably the predominant exhaust gas
