Determination of Volume Correction Factors for FAME and FAME / Mineral-diesel blends

Fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) are the primary constituents of biodiesels.

This report presents work done to measure the thermal expansion and compressibility of samples of diesel with added FAMEs.

The work was organised through the UK Energy Institute (formerly the Institute of Petroleum) Oil Transportation Measurement Committee, HMC-4, and carried out by H&D Fitzgerald Ltd. The project was managed by the UK Energy Institute.
