Hydrocarbon fuels tend to form deposits in the thermal environment associated with high mach number flight. The Advanced Aircraft Fuel System Simulator provides thermal stability data on fuels which are used to determine aircraft fuel system design criteria, operational limits of fuels, and to aid in the development of small-scale thermal stability test devices. Fuel AFFB-14-70, the seventh fuel in a series, was tested under cyclic and steady-state conditions. Steady-state manifold tests were run to determine the effect of dissolved oxygen on thermal stability. The results of tests using manifold tubes with widely different surface finishes are reported.
