Abstract : A review of the literature has been made as part of an extensive study of vaporizing and endothermic fuels for advanced engine application. Abstracts are presented for 1086 references covering cooling requirements of supersonic aircraft, properties of vaporizing and endothermic fuels, thermal and catalytic reactions of hydrocarbon fuels, high temperature fuel stability, fuel contaminants and additives, fuel combustion characteristics, physical-chemical properties, heat transfer and flow behavior, and advanced engine design. The references are arranged by author. Subject and source indexes are provided.
