Tests were performed to determine the thermal stability of a JP-5 jet fuel with varying concentrations of dissolved oxygen under supercritical pressure and temperature conditions. Tests were done with the Advanced Aircraft Fuel Systems Simulator using a simulated engine manifold. Small unintentional variations in the test pressure caused large changes in deposit formation rate. These variations obscured any effects of dissolved oxygen. The results indicate that tests to determine the effects of dissolved oxygen on thermal stability of jet fuel at supercritical conditions will have to be run with carefully controlled test pressures.
