Abstract:

A discussion is presented of the results of five different gas turbine engines operating on emulsified JP-4 fuel. Problems associated with using emulsified fuel, and the conclusions and recommendations as they pertain to each individual engine, are given. The results of these studies indicate that it is feasible to operate a gas turbine engine on emulsified JP-4 fuel. Several areas in which further research is needed, as recognized by the engine companies, are brought out.
