Compressed-Liquid Densities of Three Reference Fuels for Combustion Testing
Stephanie L. Outcalt
Compressed-liquid densities of three aviation fuels have been measured with a vibrating-tube densimeter. The measurements were made from 270 K to 470 K, and 0.5 MPa to 45 MPa and have an overall combined uncertainty of 0.81 kg.m-3. The data from each of the samples have been correlated with a modified Tait nist-equation and the parameters are given for each. Compressed- liquid densities of the fuels reported herein are compared with previously measured densities of a Jet-A and correlations for JP-5 and JP-8.
