71. The Internal Fluid Mechanics of Explosive Trace Detectors using Computational Fluid Dynamics
Series: OTHER
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 5/1/2009
Authors: Matthew E Staymates, Wayne Smith, John G Gillen
Abstract: Efforts are underway in the Surface and Microanalysis Science Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology to study the vapor transport mechanisms inside explosive trace detection instruments (ETD s) and produce standard test materi ...

72. Analysis of Fuel Ethanol Plant Liquor with the Composition Explicit Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 4/16/2009
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Arron Wolk, Alexander Naydich
Abstract: While the use of ethanol and ethanol blends as motor fuels dates back to the earliest vehicles, ethanol has recently received extraordinary attention as a renewable liquid fuel. In the United States, the application of this fluid is mainly as an add ...

73. Application of the Advanced Distillation Curve Method to the Aviation Fuel Avgas 100LL
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 3/2/2009
Authors: Tara M Lovestead, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: We have recently introduced several important improvements in the measurement of distillation curves for complex fluids. The modifications to the classical method and apparatus provide for (1) a composition explicit data channel for each distillate ...

74. Thermal Decomposition Kinetics of Propylcyclohexane
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 1/21/2009
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: As part of a large-scale thermophysical property measurement project, the decomposition kinetics of propylcyclohexane was investigated. Decomposition reactions were performed at 375, 400, 425, and 450 °C in stainless steel ampoule reactors. At each t ...

76. Variability of The Rocket Propellants RP-1, RP-2, and TS-5: Application of a Composition- and Enthalpy-Explicit Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 12/3/2008
Authors: Lisa S. Ott, Amelia B. Hadler, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: We have recently introduced several important improvements in the measurement of distillation curves for complex fluids.  This method is a significant improvement over current approaches, featuring a composition-explicit data channel for each di ...

77. Thermal Decomposition of RP-1, RP-2, and Mixtures of RP-2 With Stabilizing Additives
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 11/3/2008
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: ----- FOR POLICY REVIEW ONLY ----- The thermal decomposition of RP-1, RP-2, and mixtures of RP-2 with three different additives has been investigated. The mixtures with RP-2 contained 5% 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (tetralin), 5% 1,2,3,4-tetrahy ...

78. Composition-Explicit Distillation Curves of Commercial Biodiesel Fuels: Comparison of Petroleum-Derived Fuel with B20 and B100
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 7/2/2008
Authors: Beverly L. Smith, Lisa S. Ott, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: We have recently introduced several important improvements in the measurement of distillation curves for complex fluids.  The modifications provide for (1) a composition explicit data channel for each distillate fraction (for both qualitative and qua ...

80. Modifications to the copper strip corrosion test for the measurement of sulfur-related corrosion
Topic: Chemical Analysis
Published: 10/1/2007
Authors: Lisa S. Ott, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The copper strip corrosion test (CSCT) is used to measure the corrosivity of sulfur compounds in fluids. The CSCT is performed by immersing a strip of cleaned, polished copper in a fluid at a specified temperature for a predetermined time, then readi ...
