51. Properties of a 50/50 Mixture of Jet-A + S-8
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6647
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 3/14/2007
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Arno R Laesecke, Stephanie L Outcalt, Hans-Dieter Seelig, Beverly L. Smith
Abstract: This report describes measurement efforts performed on the mixture of aviation fuels: Jet-A + S-8*. The primary mixture is a 50/50 (vol/vol) combination of the two fuels. Measurements include chemical analysis, density, viscosity, speed of sound and ...

52. Advanced Distillation Curve Measurement with a Model Predictive Temperature Controller
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 9/1/2006
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Beverly L. Smith
Abstract: In previous work, several significant improvements in the measurement of distillation curves for complex fluids were introduced. The modifications to the classical measurement provide for (1) temperature and volume measurement(s) of low uncertainty, ...

53. Annual Performance Report: Thermodynamic, Transport and Chemical Properties of Reference JP-8
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 9/1/2006
Author: Thomas J Bruno
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, w ...

54. Method and Apparatus for Precision In-Line Sampling of Distillate
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 2/26/2006
Author: Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: In this short note we present a method and a simple apparatus for use with simple, fractional and steam distillation operations in which the operator requires a precise measurement of instantaneous distillate composition as the distillation proceeds. ...

55. Method for Estimating the Dielectirc Constant of Natural Gas Mixtures
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 1/11/2005
Authors: Allan H Harvey, Eric W Lemmon
Abstract: A method is developed for calculating the static dielectric constant (relative permittivity) of fluid mixtures, with an emphasis on natural gas. The dielectric constant is calculated as a function of temperature, density, and composition; the densit ...

57. A Closed System Digestion and Purification Procedure for the Accurate Assay of Chlorine in Fossil Fuels
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 10/1/2004
Authors: M E Howard, Robert D Vocke Jr
http://www.nist.gov/manuscript-publication-search.cfm?pub_id=903332

58. Speed of Sound and Other Related Thermodynamic Properties Calculated From the AGA8 Detail Characterization Method
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/19/2003
Authors: Eric W Lemmon, K. E. Starling
Abstract: The AGA8 Detail Characterization Method allows for the calculation of the compressibility factor (or pressure) for a natural gas mixture given known conditions of density and temperature. Iterative procedures can be used to calculate the density whe ...

59. Distinguishing the Relative Contribution of Fossil Fuel and Biomass Combustion Aerosols Deposited at Summit, Greenland through Isotopic and Molecular Characterization of Insoluble Carbon
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 9/1/2002
Authors: J F. Slater, Lloyd A. Currie, J E Dibb, Bruce A Benner Jr
Abstract: Although the earth's polar regions are isolated from most industrial activity, combustion-generated particles from both fossil fuel and biomass burning impact the regions. Most efforts aimed at quantifying the input of combustion aerosols at Sum ...
