Abstract : From the middle oil, by-product of the vapor pyrolysis of gasoline, supersonic fuels were produced by hydrogenation which, according to their structure, are mixtures of substituted decalins. Fuels of this type have a stability about 100F higher than conventional jet fuels. Their physicochemical qualities meet very high standards of supersonic fuels. Due to their structure, the combustion behaviour is however not sufficient for jet fuels, but it does not exclude their use on principle. Such bicyclic naphthenic fuels are distinguished by a favourable low temperature behaviour and high volume heating values. (Author)
