Abstract : A program entitled 'Thermally-Stable Jet Fuels Development' was initiated in FY89 by the U.S. Air Force, Aero Propulsion and Power Directorate, working jointly with the Department of Energy, Pittsburgh Energy Technology Center. Thermal stability of aviation fuels is of concern because of the potential operation problems arising from fuel degradation under thermal stress conditions. Sandia National Laboratories has been conducting efforts to develop instrumentation for monitoring characteristics of jet fuel degradation and solids deposition and develop models of those mechanisms from the data acquired using that instrumentation. This report describes the instrumentation development, data acquisition, and model parameter determination. Analysis of solid deposits is also described.
