31. Thermal Decomposition of RP-2 with Stabilizing Additives
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/7/2010
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The thermal decomposition of RP-2 and mixtures of RP-2 with four different additives has been investigated. The mixtures with RP-2 contained one of the following: 5 % /trans/-decahydronaphthalene (decalin); 5 % 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (tetralin ...

32. Application of the Advanced Distillation Curve Method to the Development of Unleaded Aviation Gasoline
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 4/2/2010
Authors: Bret Windom, Tara M Lovestead, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The primary fuel used within the general aviation industry is a petroleum based gasoline blended with small amounts of tetraethyl lead (a lead-based additive used to increase the octane number of gasoline without affecting its performance) called 100 ...

33. Relating Complex Fluid Composition and Thermophysical Properties with the Advanced Distillation Curve Approach
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 3/17/2010
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Lisa S. Ott, Tara M Lovestead, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: Complex fluids have long posed a significant challenge in our ability to characterize and model fluid properties. Here, we consider complex fluids to be mixtures with many components that can differ significantly in polarity and polarizability. The ...

34. Complex Fluid Analysis with the Advanced Distillation Curve Approach
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 2/1/2010
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Lisa S. Ott, Beverly L. Smith, Tara M Lovestead
Abstract: An improved method for measuring distillation curves reveals the physicochemical properties of complex fluids such as fuels.

35. Density and Speed of Sound Measurements of Hexadecane
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 1/7/2010
Authors: Stephanie L Outcalt, Arno R Laesecke, Tara J Fortin
Abstract: The density and speed of sound of hexadecane have been measured using two instruments. Both instruments use the vibrating-tube method for measuring density. Ambient pressure (83 kPa) density and speed of sound measurements were carried out with a r ...

36. Thermodynamic Properties of Propane. III. A Reference Equation of State for Temperatures from the Melting Line to 650 K and Pressures up to 1000 MPa
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/23/2009
Authors: Eric W Lemmon, Mark O McLinden, W Wagner
Abstract: Times New RomanA formulation is presented for the thermodynamic properties of propane. The equation of state is valid for temperatures from the triple point temperature (85.525 K) to 650 K and for pressures up to 1000 MPa. The formulation can be us ...

37. The Composition Explicit Distillation Curve Technique: Relating Chemical Analysis and Physical Properties of Complex Fluids
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/17/2009
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Lisa S. Ott, Tara M Lovestead, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: The analysis of complex fluids such as crude oils, fuels, vegetable oils and mixed waste streams poses significant challenges arising primarily from the multiplicity of components, the different properties of the components (polarity, polarizability, ...

38. Effect of RP-1 Compositional Variability on Thermophysical Properties
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 10/6/2009
Authors: Marcia L Huber, Eric W Lemmon, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: We compare experimental and predicted thermophysical properties of two samples of rocket propellant RP-1 obtained from different batches of RP-1 that exhibit compositional variations. One sample is atypical, due to a high olefin content. The effect o ...

39. 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} ...

40. 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 ...
