Abstract:

Problems with undesirable foaming of RP-1 fuel at several missile bases revealed a need for a rapid and simple test to measure the foam formation characteristics of the fuel. A procedure was developed, followed by a revision, for testing the foam formation of RP-1 fuel by shaking a fuel sample in a container. The original procedure utilized an unguided shaking technique while the revision utilized a guided one.
