Abstract : Eight laboratories conducted tests on nine fuels to evaluate an accelerated storage stability test procedure for measuring the hydroperoxide forming potential of jet fuels. Based on the cooperative work reported herein the 65 C accelerated test readily distinguishes between stable and unstable fuels in approximately 3 weeks stress time. Consequently it appears useful for screening jet fuels for their long-time oxidation stability. Thus this test is recommended as a Go-No-Go test and this is what was sought in these studies. On the other hand, the variability of results within and between laboratories would seem to preclude its use as a precise quantitative tool.
