1. 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 ...

2. 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

3. 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 ...

4. A thermodynamic investigation of the cellulose allomorphs: cellulose(am), cellulose I¿(cr), cellulose II(cr), and cellulose III(cr)
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: Date unknown
Authors: Robert Nathan Goldberg, Jacob Schliesser, Ashutosh Mittal, Stephen R Decker, Ana Filipa L.O.M. Santos, Vera L.S. Freitas, Aaron A Urbas, Brian E Lang, Christian Heisse, Maria D. M. C. Ribeiro da Silva, Brian F Woodfield, Rui Katahira, Wei Wang, David K Johnson
Abstract: The thermochemistry of samples of amorphous cellulose, cellulose I, cellulose II, and cellulose III was studied by using oxygen bomb calorimetry, solution calorimetry in which the solvent was cadoxen, and with a Physical Property Measurement System ...

5. Advanced Distillation Curve Analysis of Marine Diesel Fuel
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 1/17/2013
Authors: Peter Y. Hsieh, Kathryn Rosemary Abel, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Ocean-going ships burn heavy fuel oil. The combustion of heavy fuel oil in marine diesel engines emits nitrogen oxides, sulfur oxides, and particulates into the air. Growing public concern over air quality has led to increased scrutiny of heavy fue ...

6. 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, ...

7. 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 ...

8. Application of a Composition-Explicit Distillation Curve Metrology to Mixtures of Jet-A and S-8
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 2/19/2008
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Beverly L. Smith
Abstract: We have recently introduced several important improvements in the measurement of distillation curves for complex fluids. The modifications to the classical measurement provide for (1) temperature and volume measurements of low uncertainty, (2) tempe ...

9. 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 ...

10. Application of the Advanced Distillation Curve Method to the Variability of Jet Fuels
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/24/2012
Authors: Jessica Lynne Burger, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: In this paper, we report the application of the advanced distillation-curve approach to the gas turbine fuels Jet-A, JP-8, and JP-5, in order to obtain information about the variability of these gas turbine fuels. The measurements of the temperatures ...
