This report summarizes a study conducted to standardize the fuel performance data used in the Ramjet and Laser Aerodynamics Division of the Air Force Aero Propulsion Laboratory. The NASA One-Dimensional Equilibrium ODE thermochemical computer program was used to generate the fuel combustion product properties contained in the tables and graphs in this report. Thermochemical equilibrium data molecular weight, specific heat ratio, and ideal temperature rise is presented for JP-4, JP-5, JP-7, and RJ-5 combusted in air at constant pressures of 1, 5, and 10 atmospheres, at fuel-to-air ratios from 0.025 to 0.10, and at total air temperatures from 400 to 2500R. The combustion process was assumed adiabatic and a constant fuel temperature of 298.15K was maintained. The fuel and air properties used in the calculations are presented.
