This work is carried out to investigate the spreading ability of some crude oil types by developing model equations for each of them based on the power law. Seven different types of crude oil are used for the tests. It is discovered from the results of the experiments that, among the crude oil types studied, Brass Light Mbede has the highest spreading rate while Heavy H crude oil type has the lowest. The good agreement between the experimental and estimated results from the simulation of the model equations developed reveals that the models developed describe the spreading behaviour of the crude oil types. Moreover, the results obtained from the observed Fvalues which were found to be greater than the critical F-value in each case of the crude oil types showed that the developed model equations are significant.
