    Abstract

    This paper constitutes a report by the chairman of Section B, Research Division VII on Flow Properties of ASTM Committee D-2 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, on the activities of Section B in the field of engine oil viscometry at low temperatures.

    In presenting this report, the chairman presumes to summarize the information thus far presented, privately or publicly, by members or associates of Section B. While this report may not completely reflect the views of all contributors, it is hoped that it correctly amalgamates their work into an easily accessible, and generally useful, body of information on the subject.

    The members and associates of Section B contributing to the work in the area of high-shear viscometry of engine oils at low temperatures are: O. L. Brandes, Member, of the Gulf Research and Development Co., A. W. Sisko, Associate, who contributed to the effort through L. C. Brunstrum, Member, both of the Standard Oil Co. of Indiana, G. A.
