Moreover, multivariable statistical analyses techniques have been used for predicting the pressure viscosity coefficient of lubricants using NMR experiments [13].
A number of studies have been carried out in the past on determining and establishing the dependency among different lubricant parameters since Barus established a relation between viscosity and pressure by introducing pressure viscosity coefficient "[alpha]" [14].

The viscometric technique reported here serves the dual purpose of generating useful high pressure viscosity data and detecting phase transitions that cause marked rheological changes in polymer solutions, especially at low polymer concentrations.
