61. 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, ...

62. 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} ...

63. 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 ...

64. 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 ...

65. Thermal Decomposition of RP-2 with Stabilizing Additives
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 5/7/2010
Authors: Jason A Widegren, Thomas J Bruno
Abstract: The thermal decomposition of RP-2 and mixtures of RP-2 with four different additives has been investigated. The mixtures with RP-2 contained one of the following: 5 % /trans/-decahydronaphthalene (decalin); 5 % 1,2,3,4-tetrahydronaphthalene (tetralin ...

66. Thermodynamic Properties of Propane. III. A Reference Equation of State for Temperatures from the Melting Line to 650 K and Pressures up to 1000 MPa
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 11/23/2009
Authors: Eric W Lemmon, Mark O McLinden, W Wagner
Abstract: Times New RomanA formulation is presented for the thermodynamic properties of propane. The equation of state is valid for temperatures from the triple point temperature (85.525 K) to 650 K and for pressures up to 1000 MPa. The formulation can be us ...

68. 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 ...

69. Volatility of Mixtures of JP-8 with Biomass Derived Hydroprocessed Renewable Jet Fuels by the Composition Explicit Distillation Curve Method
Topic: Fossil Fuels
Published: 2/28/2012
Authors: Jean Van Buren, Kathryn Abel, Tara M Lovestead, Thomas J Bruno
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 ...

70. 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 ...
