11. Assessment of Variability in the Thermophysical Properties of Rocket Propellant RP-1
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 6/14/2012
Author: Tara J Fortin
Abstract: Density, speed of sound, and viscosity has been measured for eleven orthogonal blends of the rocket propellant RP-1. Density and speed of sound were measured over the temperature range of 278 K to 343 K, while viscosity was measured from 263 K to 373 ...

12. Assessment of the Compositional Variability of RP-1 and RP-2 with the Advanced Distillation Curve Approach
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/7/2010
Authors: Bret Windom, Tara M Lovestead, Jennifer Riggs, Chris Nickell, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: RP-1 is a long-established hydrocarbon fuel that continues to be widely used as the kerosene component in rocket propulsion systems. The desire in recent years to use rocket motors many times, rather than a single time, has led to reformulations of ...

13. Assessment of the Thermophysical Properties of Thermally Stressed RP-1 and RP-2
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/2/2013
Authors: Tara J Fortin, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Density, speed of sound, and viscosity have been measured for samples of RP-1 and RP-2 that were stressed for 0.5 min at 475 °C and 510 °C at a pressure of 17 MPa. Density and speed of sound were measured from 5 °C to 50 °C for the samples stressed ...

14. Chemical and Thermophysical Characterization of 1,3,5-triisopropylcyclohexane
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 7/17/2012
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Tara J Fortin, Tara M Lovestead, Jason A Widegren
Abstract: The complex nature of finished fuels makes definitive studies on composition and combustion properties very difficult and uncertain. This has led to the adoption of fuel surrogate mixtures in such studies. The development of a surrogate mixture is ...

15. Comparison of Biomass-Derived Turbine Fuels with the Composition-Explicit Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 3/6/2011
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Evgenii Baibourine
Abstract: In recent years, civilian and military users of aviation kerosene have been interested in expanding the scope of fuel feed stocks to include non-petroleum sources. The most well known examples of such alternative sources of fuel are the Fisher-Trops ...

16. Comparison of Diesel Fuel Oxygenate Additives with Composition-Explicit Distillation Curve Method Part 3: t-Butyl Glycerols
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/2/2011
Authors: Tara M Lovestead, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: Interest in the domestic production of all fuels, sparked by the high cost of petroleum crude oil, has led to consideration of fluids to replace or extend conventional petroleum-derived fuels. There is particular interest in formulating oxygenated d ...

17. Comparison of Diesel Fuel Oxygenates with Composition-Explicit Distillation Curve Method Part 4: Alcohols, Aldehydes, and Butanoic Acid
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 1/2/2012
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Jessica Lynne Burger, Evgenii Baibourine
Abstract: There is a great deal of interest in formulating oxygenated diesel fuels that produce low particulate emissions. In this paper, the fourth in a series of papers on the properties of mixtures of diesel fuel with oxygenating additives, we present the ...

18. Comparison of Diesel Fuel Oxygenates with Composition-Explicit Distillation Curve Method Part 1: Linear Compounds with One to Three Oxygens
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/2/2011
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Tara M Lovestead, Jennifer Riggs, Erica Jorgensen, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: There is a great deal of interest in formulating oxygenated diesel fuels that produce low particulate emissions. The most common oxygenating additives for diesel fuels include the glycol ethers, glycol esters, alcohols, ethers and ketones. It is im ...

19. 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.

20. 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 ...
