Abstract:This work describes the development and benefits of a database for alternative jet fuels. Data on alternative jet fuels, conventional jet fuels and blends of alternative and conventional jet fuels were collected from the Air Force Research Lab, Metron Aviation and Petroleum Quality Information System. This data was converted to a JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) form and uploaded to the nonrelational database, DynamoDB. Accessing this data with python scripts, various graphs were produced to analyze data. Stacked histograms were used to visually represent fuel composition and to better understand how the production pathway influences the chemical composition of the fuel. Distillation curves and boxplots were used to identify and isolate erroneous data, and Multivariate Linear Regression analysis was performed to understand the relationship among various fuel properties.
