41. 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

42. 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, ...

43. 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} ...

44. 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 ...

45. Thermal Decomposition of RP-1, RP-2, and Mixtures of RP-2 With Stabilizing Additives
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/3/2008
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: ----- FOR POLICY REVIEW ONLY ----- The thermal decomposition of RP-1, RP-2, and mixtures of RP-2 with three different additives has been investigated. The mixtures with RP-2 contained 5% 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (tetralin), 5% 1,2,3,4-tetrahy ...

46. Thermal decomposition kinetics of the thermally stable jet fuels JP-7, JP-TS and JP-900
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 4/3/2014
Authors: Raina V. Gough, Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The global thermal decomposition kinetics of JP-7, JP-TS and JP-900 were studied. Decomposition reactions were performed at 375, 400, 425, and 450 °C in stainless-steel ampule reactors. At each temperature, the extent of decomposition as a function o ...

47. Vapor-phase (p, , T, x) behavior and virial coefficients for the (methane + propane) system
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/12/2014
Authors: Mark O McLinden, Markus Richter
Abstract: The (p, ρ, T, x) behavior of three (methane + propane) mixtures was measured with a two-sinker magnetic suspension densimeter over the temperature range of (248.15 to 373.15) K with pressures up to the lesser of the dew point pressure or 6 MPa. ...

48. Variability of The Rocket Propellants RP-1, RP-2, and TS-5: Application of a Composition- and Enthalpy-Explicit Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 12/3/2008
Authors: Lisa S. Ott, Amelia B. Hadler, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: We have recently introduced several important improvements in the measurement of distillation curves for complex fluids.  This method is a significant improvement over current approaches, featuring a composition-explicit data channel for each di ...

49. Wide Ranging Viscosity Measurements of Rocket Propellant RP-2
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 8/28/2013
Authors: Arno R Laesecke, Dylan S. Cousins
Abstract: Expanding on earlier viscosity measurements of rocket propellants from 293 K to 373 K at atmospheric pressure, the viscosity of rocket propellant RP-2 was measured from 270 K to 450 K with pressures to 137 MPa. The instrument was an oscillating pisto ...
