Abstract:

In accordance with BuShips Contract NObs 88423, a production line J79-8 engine, less afterburner and anti-ice control, was operated with a fixed area conical nozzle to simulate LM1500 power turbine to determine effect of burning poor quality diesel fuel per MIL-F-16884D. The effect of burning diesel on engine performance, combustion linear temperatures, turbine inlet temperature profile and first stage turbine nozzle metal temperatures was determined for a thirty hour endurance run.
