21. Composition-Explicit Distillation Curves of Aviation Fuels JP-8 and a Coal-Based Jet Fuel
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 7/11/2007
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) a composition explicit data channel for each distillate fraction ( ...

22. 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 ...

23. 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) ...

24. Determination of Column Selectivity Toward Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 3/1/1988
Authors: Lane C Sander, Stephen A Wise

25. Determination of sulfur in fossil fuels by isotope dilution electrothermal vaporization inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Lee Lijian Yu, William R. Kelly, John D. Fassett, Robert D Vocke Jr

26. 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 ...

27. 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 ...

28. Evaluation of the Physicochemical Authenticity of Aviation Kerosene Surrogate Mixtures Part I: Analysis of Volatility with the Advanced Distillation Curve
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 7/19/2010
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Beverly L. Smith
Abstract: Because of the complexities involved in measuring and modeling the performance and properties of finished fuels, the scientific community must often use surrogate mixtures, especially in the absence of consensus standard mixtures. While surrogate mi ...

29. Evaluation of the Physicochemical Authenticity of Aviation Kerosene Surrogate Mixtures Part II: Analysis and Prediction of Thermophysical Properties
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 7/19/2010
Authors: Thomas J Bruno, Marcia L Huber
Abstract: In part I of this series of papers, we presented an evaluation strategy that can be applied to surrogate mixtures for finished fuels. This strategy uses the advanced distillation curve approach to evaluate the surrogate in terms of physicochemical a ...
