Comparison of Heat Capacity Measurements of Alternative and Conventional Aviation Fuels
Tara Fortin, Thomas Bruno, Tara Lovestead
Isobaric specific heat capacities were measured for nine separate aviation turbine fuel samples. The nine samples span the range of fuel types available, including four conventional petroleum-derived fuels, three synthetic fuels derived from the Fischer-Tropsch process, and two renewable fuels derived from biomass feedstocks. All measurements were made using modulated differential scanning calorimetry over the combined temperature range of (223 to 442) K. Experimental data, including an assessment of the associated expanded uncertainties, have been reported. Additionally, measurement results for the nine fuels were compared with one another and with available literature data and existing surrogate mixture models.
