It's possible to derive TBP from partial distillation data

Dicho Stratiev Angel Nedelchev Rosen Dinkov Lukoil Neftochim Bulgaria Bourgas, Bulgaria Assen Batchvarov University of Edinburgh Edinburgh, Scotland Distribution characteristics of crude oils and crude oil fractions, as measured by ASTM D-2892, D-5236, D-86, D-2887, and D-1160, can be accurately described by Riazi's boiling point distribution model.1 A full-range distillation curve can then be generated from an incomplete distillation data set. Specifically, the full-range crude true boiling point (TBP) curve can be generated from only the atmospheric part of the crude distillation analysis. A further improvement in the speed of generating the full-range crude TBP curve can be achieved by...
