Abstract

The main goal of this study was to investigate the thermal diffusion in ternary hydrocarbon mixtures composed of 1, 2, 3, 4 Tetrahydronaphtalene (THN)-Isobutylbenzene (IBB)-Dodecane (C12) with mass fractions of 80/10/10, 70/10/20, and 60/10/30 at mean temperature of 25 °C. Optical interferometry technique with Mach-Zehnder arrangement was used to conduct the experiments. The mixture was placed in a convectionless cell which was heated from above. The results for the mixture with mass fraction of 80/10/10 were in a good agreement with the corresponding benchmark values. Finally, the Soret coefficient for the other two mixtures have been proposed.
