Abstract:

An improved ramjet fuel consisting of hydrogenated hydrocarbons uses a minimum weight percentage of 50 tetrahydromethylcyclopentadiene dimer TH-dimer with about 50 by wt. exo-tetrahydrodicyclopentadiene Exo-THDC. The mixture exceeds U.S. Navy flash point requirements of 60 C while yielding a lower viscosity than TH-dimer alone. Volumetric heating properties of the mixture make it an excellent ramjet fuel.
