Abstract : This report describes a research program at Stanford University that focused on four areas of critical concern in the study of the combustion of jet fuels at low temperatures: the development of a fundamental kinetics database utilizing shock tubes and laser absorption for jet fuel surrogate components; the development of a new constrained-reaction-volume strategy to improve shock tube performance; the development of new laser diagnostics techniques; and the application of an aerosol shock tube to investigate low-vapor-pressure fuels.
