Oilcalcs HD for iPad has been updated to version 1.1.0 today, and now includes volumetric shrinkage calculations in the two fuel blending tools, just like its iPhone counterpart Oilcalcs and its Android counterpart OilCalcsPro.
As mentioned in a previous post for the Android app, both blending tools now include formulas from API MPMS Chapter 12.3 to calculate volumetric shrinkage as a result of mixing hydrocarbons.
In the new version, both blending tools include shrinkage calculation and in the “Fuel blend two components” tool the actual shrinkage is displayed in the results:

For more information regarding volumetric shrinkage, please refer to our post “API MPMS Ch 12.3 – Volumetric shrinkage when mixing hydro carbons” which explains the theory behind shrinkage as well as the formulas used.
The user manual for the iPad version of Oilcalcs is currently being compiled. It will be available for free download in the tab “User Manuals for oil calculators”, just like the iPhone and Android versions of the manual which are already available online.
