Abstract

This report describes measurement and modeling efforts performed on the missile fuel, JP-10. Measurements* include chemical analysis, thermal decomposition kinetics, density, viscosity, speed of sound, thermal conductivity and vapor pressure (distillation curve measurement). These measurements and data from the literature were then used in the formulation of a Helmholtz energy model to describe the equilibrium properties, and a corresponding states model for the transport properties.
