Title: Annual Performance Report: Thermodynamic, Transport and Chemical Properties of Reference JP-8
Published: September 01, 2006
Abstract: The NIST research focuses on measurement of major thermophysical and chemical properties of JP-8, to develop it as a reference fluid. The properties include fluid volatility, density, speed of sound, viscosity and thermal conductivity. In addition, we are assessing the global thermal decomposition of the fluid, primarily to guide our property measurements. The measured properties will be used to develop a predictive surrogate fluid model for real JP-8. Three different samples of Jet-A, a sample of JP-8 and a sample of S-8 have been obtained, and measurements are in progress on all of these fluids.
