Abstract

This report describes measurement efforts performed on the mixture of aviation fuels: Jet-A + S-8*. The primary mixture is a 50/50 (vol/vol) combination of the two fuels. Measurements include chemical analysis, density, viscosity, speed of sound and vapor pressure (by a distillation curve measurement). This document is meant to compile in one source the available measured data for the mixture.
