F-3 and F-4 engine tests of several high-antiknock components of aviation fuel

Description: Report discussing testing on triptane, hot-acid octane, diisopropyl, neohexane, mixed xylenes, cumene, benzene, toluene, and methyl tert-butyl ether in several blends to determine their knock-limited performance data in F-3 and F-4 engines at standard operating conditions. All of the blending agents examined were found to be usable, with concentrations varying depending on various thermodynamic properties.

A preliminary experimental and analytical evaluation of diborane as a ram-jet fuel

Description: Report presenting an analytical and experimental evaluation of diborane as a ram-jet fuel, which seems to offer greater flight range, thrust, and combustion stability beyond what is attainable with petroleum fuels. Results regarding ideal thrust, stability, deposits, and flight range with several blends of diborane are provided.

Knock-limited blending characteristics of blends of triptane and 28-R aviation fuel

Description: From Summary: "F-3 and F-4 knock data are presented for blends of 0, 20, 40, 60, and 80 percent by volume of triptane in 28-R reference fuel plus approximately 4.6 ml TEL per gallon in the final blends. For comparison of knock-limited performance, 28-R reference fuel containing 2.7 percent by volume of xylidines and leaded to 6 ml TEL per gallon is included. In order to provide information on temperature sensitivities, two sets of modified conditions were used in addition to the standard F-4 engine conditions."
