Abstract:

A survey was conducted to determine the thermal stabilities of JP-4 fuels produced by refineries in the United States. The effect on fuel availability of increasing the test conditions of the JP-4 specification from 300400F to 325425F was determined to be minimal provided a precise method of measuring thermal stability is available. Physical properties on the 19 JP-4 fuels are documented. Modified author abstract
