Performance evaluation of a typical gas turbine engine combustion system was conducted to determine the combustion characteristics of two gelled Jet A fuels Jet A plus 1.5 N-coco-gamma-hydroxybutyramide, and Jet A plus 2 of a styrene type polymer. Testing of an emulsified fuel was terminated due to separation of the emulsion by the shearing action of the boost pump in the system. The conclusions reached 1 indicate the feasibility of employing gelled fuels from a combustion standpoint and, 2 demonstrate filtration, atomization, and deposition problems. Author
