Abstract : Many tabulations of hydrocarbon combustion properties are found in the literature. Unfortunately, most of these report what the author believes to be the best value for each property, and do not include all combustion properties. This report presents a compilation of combustion and physical properties which can be used in a variety of combustion problems. Referenced values are included for flash point, flammability limits, autoignition temperature, maximum flame velocity, minimum ignition energy, and quenching distance. The physical properties include molecular weight, carbon-hydrogen ratio, vapor density, heats of combustion and vaporization, liquid density, refractive index, surface tension, viscosity and vapor pressure data.
