Abstract:

New fuels must be developed to meet future Air Force missions which impose severe thermal stresses. They must be thermally stable at 400 F less than 1 decomposition after one hour, have a density impulse with N2O4 equal to or greater than that of hydrazine, and good physical properties over the temperature range -65 to 400 F. This Phase 1 report covers a literature survey, synthesis, theoretical performance and preliminary thermal and physical evaluation of such fuels. Three candidates were studied and three were selected which meet all of the above requirements and which are commercially available.
