Abstract:

An experimental investigation was made to determine whether the maximum sulfur content of 0.4 weight per cent, currently allowed in grade JP-5 aviation turbine fuel, is a safe level for protection of the super-alloys used in high performance engines when operated in a marine environment. A second phase dealt with the effect of fuel molecular structure and volatility on the total radiant energy from combustor flames, which by contributing to the operating temperature of hot section components limits aircraft turbine engine power and durability.
