31. Methodology for Formulating Diesel Surrogate Fuels with Accurate Compositional, Ignition-Quality, and Volatility Characteristics
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/14/2012
Authors: Charles J. Mueller, William J. Cannella, Thomas J Bruno, Bruce Bunting, Heather Dettman, James A. Franz, Marcia L Huber, Mani Natarajan, William J. Pitz, Matthew A. Ratcliff, Ken Wright
Abstract: In this work a novel approach is developed to formulate surrogate fuels having characteristics that are representative of diesel fuels produced from real-world refinery streams. Because diesel fuels consist of hundreds of compounds, it is difficult t ...

32. Multichannel Decomposition and Isomerization of Octyl Radicals
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 10/9/2008
Authors: Wing Tsang, William S McGivern, Jeffrey A Manion
Abstract: The thermal cracking patterns from the decomposition and isomerization of octyl-1 radicals have been determined from the pyrolysis of n-octyl iodide in single pulse shock tube experiments at temperatures in the 850-1000 K range and pressures near 2 b ...

33. P-{rho}-T Behavior of Four Lean Synthetic Natural-Gas-Like Mixtures from 250 K to 450 K with Pressures to 37 MPa
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 2/18/2011
Author: Mark O McLinden
Abstract: The p-{rho}-T behaviors of four lean synthetic natural gas mixtures were measured along isotherms of 250 K, 350 K, and 450 K with pressures to 37 MPa with a two-sinker, magnetic-suspension densimeter. The gravimetrically prepared mixtures have seven ...

34. 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 ...

Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 6/10/2011
Authors: Robert P. Borthwick, Matthew F Bundy
Abstract: This study provides an analysis of the uncertainty of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from an 8 MW natural gas burner. A precise and accurate point source for industrial quantities of carbon dioxide can be used to evaluate the performance of stack ga ...

36. Reference Correlation of the Viscosity of n-Heptane from the Triple Point to 600 K and up to 248 MPa
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 6/5/2014
Authors: E.K. Michailidou, Marc J. Assael, Marcia L Huber, Ilmutdin Magomedovich Abdulagatov, Richard A Perkins
Abstract: This paper contains new, representative reference equations for the viscosity of n-heptane. The equations are based in part upon a body of experimental data that has been critically assessed for internal consistency and for agreement with theory when ...

37. 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 ...

38. Software Package to Facilitate the Preparation of Intermediate-Range Fossil Fuel Standards from Certified Reference Materials
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 6/17/2010
Authors: John L Molloy, Bruce S MacDonald, William R. Kelly
Abstract: A software package has been developed in Visual Basic for Applications to assist analysts in mixing fossil fuel reference materials to produce standards of intermediate concentrations and known uncertainties. Mixing reference materials of similar ma ...

39. Surrogate Mixture Models for the Thermophysical Properties of Aviation Fuel Jet-A
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/27/2010
Authors: Marcia L Huber, Eric W Lemmon, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: We developed surrogate mixture models to represent the thermophysical properties of two samples of aviation turbine fuel Jet-A. One sample is a composite of numerous batches from a multiple manufacturers and is considered to be a representative fuel ...

40. The Anomalous Behavior of Selected Methyl-Substituted Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons in Reversed-Phase Liquid Chromatography
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 7/1/1990
Authors: Stephen Albert Wise, Lane C Sander, R. Lapouyade, P. Garrigues
