Abstract:

Fuel time-histories and overall rates of gas-phase RP-1, RP-2, JP-7, n-dodecane, and 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline decomposition reactions were measured using laser absorption in an aerosol shock tube and a heated high-pressure shock tube. Experiments were performed with 0.1 to 0.6 fuelargon mixtures for temperatures between 1000 and 1400 K and pressures from 3 to 51 atm. Fuel concentration was measured by infrared laser absorption at 3.39 956m using absorption cross sections also reported here. Fuel-removal data for n-dodecane were also used to determine the unimolecular decomposition rate constant for the reaction n-dodecane 8594 products.
