Density and Viscosity Measurements of a 50/50 JP-10 + Terpene Mixture



Stephanie L. Outcalt, Tara J. Fortin


Densities of a 50/50 by volume mixture of JP-10 + a turpentine dimer fuel (TDF) have been measured in the compressed-liquid state from 270 K to 470 K, and 0.5 MPa to 45 MPa and at ambient pressure from 263.15 K to 373.15 K. Ambient pressure dynamic viscosity has also been measured over the same temperature range. The density data have been correlated with a Rackett equation and the compressed-liquid density data fit to a Tait equation. Correlation parameters are given. Results of the mixture measurements presented here are compared with previously measured densities of the individual components, TDF and JP-10.
