One of the important mechanisms in solvent-aided thermal recovery processes is viscosity reduction. Light n-alkane hydrocarbons are among the potential solvents for solvent-aided thermal recovery processes. In this study, the viscosity of C1-C4 n-alkanes in bitumen was investigated. Adaptive neuro-fuzzy interference system (ANFIS) was used for this aim. The result obtained by the ANFIS model analyzed with the statistical parameters (i.e., MSE, MEAE, MAAE, and R2) and graphical methods. Results show that the ANFIS has high capability to the prediction of solvent/bitumen mixture viscosity.
