Abstract:

Precise density determinations were made on 100 JP-4 jet fuels using a MettlerPaar Model ADS-55 density measuring system. Statistical analysis of the density measurements was performed using a computerized nonlinear regression technique and coefficient of thermal expansion values were calculated for each fuel at 60 F. A majortiy of the fuels 88 out of 100 were consistent with the API published volume series correction for crude oils.
