    ASTM D6812

    Significance and Use

    This practice is used as a basis for determining the minimum ground-based octane requirement of turbocharged/supercharged aircraft engines by use of PRFs and RFs.

    Results from standardized octane ratings will play an important role in defining the octane requirement of a given aircraft engine, which can be applied in an effort to determine a fleet requirement.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers ground-based octane rating procedures for turbocharged/supercharged spark ignition aircraft engines. This practice has been developed to allow the widest range of applicability possible but may not be appropriate for all engine types. This practice is specifically directed to ground-based testing and actual in-flight octane ratings may produce significantly different results.

    1.2 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
