Abstract:

Physical and thermodynamic properties were studied for MIL-F-5624C grade JP-4, a MIL-F-25558 Grade RJ-1, MIL-F-25656 Grade JP-6-H, and Decalin, a commercial hydrocarbon mixture of the cis and trans isomers of decahydronapthalene. Specific properties evaluated were Equilibrium solubility of air, nitrogen and ethane in the JP-4 and RJ-1 fuels effect of dissolved air, nitrogen, and ethane on the viscosity of the JP-4 and RJ-1 fuels effect of dissolved ethane on density of the JP-4 and RJ-1 fuels effect of pressure level, agitation rate, and rate of pressure change on the evolution rate of air and ethane from the JP-4 and RJ-1 fuels thermodynamic properties of each of the four test fuels including specific heats, enthalpy, and entropy vaporization characteristics of each of the test fuels including vapor pressure, equilibrium vaporization curves, minimum reflux curves, variation of vapor molecular weight during minimum reflux distillations, and variation of density during minimum reflux distillations for the 4 fuels variation of liquid density as a function of temperature and literature survey correlation compilation for the determination of physical and thermodynamic properties of petroleum fuels.
