A series of experimental studies designed to elucidate the oxidative reactivity and ignition properties of jet fuel and its components under homogeneous shock tube and multiphase spray conditions are reported. The influences of molecular composition, fuel blending, fuelair mixture, and thermodynamic condition on oxidation and ignition are quantified and targets for kinetic model and reacting flow simulation development are provided. The most important contribution of the project is the quantification of the differences in kinetic behavior and identification of reactivity timescales across the three kinetic temperature regimes of importance in combustion processes, the low, high, and NTC temperature regions.
