Abstract : An improved ramjet fuel consisting of hydrogenated hydrocarbons uses a minimum weight percentage of 50% tetrahydromethylcyclopentadiene dimer (TH-dimer) with about 50% by wt. exo-tetrahydrodicyclopentadiene (Exo-THDC). The mixture exceeds U.S. Navy flash point requirements of 60 C while yielding a lower viscosity than TH-dimer alone. Volumetric heating properties of the mixture make it an excellent ramjet fuel.
