Abstract
A compilation has been made of the physical and chemical properties of sixteen fuels employed in an aircraft gas turbine combustor programme. Several of these are specification fuels of the kerosene or wide-cut type. Others have been chosen to exhibit systematic variations mainly in the direction of out-of-specification boiling range or aromatics level or both. Some are of non-petroleum origin, derived from oil shale or tar sands, or are synthetic fuels (JP10, RJ6). Complete specification testing was conducted on these fuels, and detailed non-specification property determination-simulated distillation by gas chromatography, thermal stability breakpoint, density, specific heat, viscosity, surface tension and true vapour pressure, all as a function of temperature; heats of combustion, hydrogen content, and detailed hydrocarbon compositional analysis.
