41. Thermal Decomposition Kinetics of Kerosene-based Rocket Propellants. 1. Comparison of RP-1 and RP-2
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 9/11/2009
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The decomposition kinetics of the kerosene-based rocket propellants RP-1 and RP-2 was studied. For RP-2, decomposition reactions were performed at 375, 400, 425, and 450 {degree}C. For RP-1, decomposition reactions were only performed at 450 {degree} ...

42. Thermal Decomposition Kinetics of Kerosene-based Rocket Propellants. 2. RP-2 with Three Additives
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 9/9/2009
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The thermal decomposition of RP-2 with three potential stabilizing additives was investigated. The additives were 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline (THQ), 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (tetralin) and the additive package that is used to make JP-8+100 (here ...

43. Thermophysical Properties Measurements of Rocket Propellants RP-1 and RP-2
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 9/1/2009
Authors: Stephanie L Outcalt, Arno R Laesecke, Karin Brumback
Abstract: The density, speed of sound, and viscosity of two rocket propellants (RP-1 and RP-2) have been measured. The combined range of the data is from 270 K to 470 K with pressures to 40 MPa. The estimated uncertainty of the density data is 0.1 % and that o ...

44. Composition-Explicit Distillation Curves for Mixtures of Diesel Fuel with Dimethyl Carbonate and Diethyl Carbonate
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 7/14/2009
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Arron Wolk, Alexander Naydich, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: We have recently introduced several important improvements in the measurement of distillation curves of complex fluids. The modifications to the classical measurement provide for (1) a composition explicit data channel for each distillate fraction ...

45. A Comparison of the Hypersonic Vehicle Fuel JP-7 to the Rocket Propellants RP-1 and RP-2 Using the Advanced Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 6/15/2009
Authors: Tara M Lovestead, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: JP-7 is a hydrocarbon-based kerosene fraction with a low volatility and high thermal stability. JP-7 was developed in the 1950s to meet the more stringent requirements necessary for the development of high-altitude reconnaissance planes that fly at ...

46. Preliminary Surrogate Mixture Models for the Thermophysical Properties of Rocket Propellants RP-1 and RP-2
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/19/2009
Authors: Marcia L Huber, Eric W Lemmon, Lisa S. Ott, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: We developed surrogate mixture models to represent the thermophysical properties of a two kerosene rocket propellants, RP-1 and RP-2. The surrogates were developed with a procedure that incorporated experimental data for the density, sound speed, vis ...

47. Composition-Explicit Distillation Curves for Mixtures of Gasoline with Four-Carbon Alcohols (Butanols)
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 3/9/2009
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Arron Wolk, Alexander Naydich
Abstract: Interest in the domestic production of bio-derived fuels, sparked by the high cost of petroleum crude oil, has lead to consideration of fluids to replace or extend conventional petroleum derived fuels. While ethanol as a gasoline extender has receive ...

48. Density and Speed of Sound Measurements of Jet A and S-8 Aviation Turbine Fuels
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 1/27/2009
Authors: Stephanie L Outcalt, Arno R Laesecke, Malte B. Freund
Abstract: The density and speed of sound were measured for three compositions of aviation jet fuel A, and a synthetic fuel (S-8) derived from the Fischer-Tropsch process. Measurements of density and speed of sound were carried out at ambient pressure (83 kPa) ...

49. Variability of The Rocket Propellants RP-1, RP-2, and TS-5: Application of a Composition- and Enthalpy-Explicit Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Fossil Fuels
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 ...

50. Thermal Decomposition of RP-1, RP-2, and Mixtures of RP-2 With Stabilizing Additives
Topic: Fossil Fuels
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 ...
