Abstract

We investigate the high-temperature limit of liquid viscosity by analyzing measured viscosity curves for 946 silicate liquids and 31 other liquids including metallic, molecular, and ionic systems. Our results show no systematic dependence of the high-temperature viscosity limit on chemical composition for the studied liquids. Based on the Mauro-Yue-Ellison-Gupta-Allan (MYEGA) model of liquid viscosity, the high-temperature viscosity limit of silicate liquids is 10-2.93 Pa•s. Having established this value, there are only two independent parameters governing the viscosity-temperature relation, namely, the glass transition temperature and fragility index.
