Abstract : Fuel tests, analyses, and analytical method development were conducted on a number of fuels of an experimental nature in conjunction with ongoing Air Force programs for studying fuel combustion behavior, turbine engine design, and other fuel related technologies. Fuels from conventional and alternate sources were studied, as were fuels of the high density missile propellant type. A wide variety of both physical and chemical properties of the fuels were measured and are tabulated. Studies conducted to aid in the solution of operational problems are also reported.
