Abstract : Since March 1967, the Properties of Cryogenic Fluids Section, NBS Cryogenics Division, under sponsorship of the Air Force Rocket Propulsion Laboratory, Edwards, California, has been engaged in a comprehensive effort to generate thermophysical properties data on fluorine through precision measurements and computational programs. This effort was divided into three basic phases: Testing of materials, construction of apparatus and modification of existing equipment for compatibility with fluorine; Experimental measurements; and Computation of derived thermodynamic and transport properties from the data. The purpose of the report is to summarize this work and to bring together under a single cover the results of these programs. (Author)
