|Title:||Density and Speed of Sound Measurements of Four Bio-derived Fuels|
|Published:||September 13, 2012|
|Abstract:||Compressed-liquid densities and ambient pressure densities and speeds of sound of four biomass-derived fuels have been measured. The compressed-liquid measurements were made from 270 K to 470 K, and 0.5 MPa to 50 MPa. The ambient pressure measurements were made from 278 K to 343 K. Compressed-liquid density data at 10 MPa and below were extrapolated to 0.083 MPa and in combination with the ambient pressure data fit to a Rackett equation to allow for comparison of the two sources of data. Additionally, the compressed-liquid density data have been correlated to a Tait equation and parameters are given for each fuel.|
