Standard Specification for Special-Purpose Test Fuels for Aviation Compression- Ignition Engines
|Publication Date:||15 December 2017|
This specification is intended to support purchasing agencies when formulating specifications for purchases of aviation distillate fuel under contract.
This specification defines specialized property requirements to produce special-purpose aviation distillate test fuels that are intended only for engineering and certification testing of aircraft, engines, and aircraft equipment. Use of this specification for engineering and certification testing of aircraft is not mandatory. Its use is at the discretion of the aircraft manufacturer, engine manufacturer, or certification authorities when determining criteria for validation of aircraft equipment design.
This specification defines special-purpose test fuels that may be used to evaluate the operability, performance and durability of aviation compression-ignition
Specification D8147 is directed at civil applications, and maintained as such, but may be adopted for military, government, or other specialized uses.
This specification can be used as a standard in describing the quality of aviation distillate fuel from production to the aircraft. However, this specification does not define the quality assurance testing and procedures necessary to ensure that fuel continues to comply with this specification after batch certification.
This specification does not include all fuels satisfactory for aviation compression-ignition
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard.
Exception-Other units of measurement are included in this standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
