Abstract

The development of surrogate fuels with measured and predicted thermophysical properties similar to their authentic refinery stream counterparts is critical for the development of fuels from alternative feed-stocks and the optimization of engines to increase efficiency and decrease emissions. In this work, four diesel fuel surrogates formulated according to a reliable and proven procedure were characterized by the advanced distillation curve (ADC) method to determine the composition and enthalpy in various distillate volume fractions. Tracking the composition and enthalpy of distillate fractions provides valuable information for determining structure property relationship and also provides the basis for the development of equations of state that can describe the thermodynamic properties of these complex mixtures.
