In this paper, the criteria for determining the composition and physicochemical properties of aviation kerosene were formulated. The data on the physicochemical properties of known kerosene surrogates were systematized and classified. The main classes of individual chemical components of aviation kerosene were determined, and the main representatives of these classes which were used in the preparation of surrogates, were investigated. Four- and six-component kerosene substitutes are proposed. The physical properties of the developed surrogates were validated according to the flow characteristics and the spray angle of the flame of a centrifugal fuel nozzle. The dependence of the flame speed on the composition of the mixture of developed kerosene surrogates was determined. The results of determining the composition of combustion products during the combustion of TS-1 brand aviation kerosene and its surrogates in a model combustion chamber were compared.
