Kerosene Fuels for Supersonic Transport 640214

In order for the supersonic transport to be economically feasible, the cost of the fuel should be essentially equivalent to ASTM type A and type A-1 prices. A survey was conducted to determine the properties of commercial kerosene. Physical and chemical properties of commercial kerosene are presented with special emphasis on thermal stability characteristics. The results of the survey indicated that some of the commercial aviation kerosene fuel being supplied to the commercial subsonic jets of today may be satisfactory for use in the supersonic transport.
