Spectral measurements were made to compare infrared radiation from the exhaust jet of an engine burning JP-4 and fuel blends which simulate fuels derived from oil shale. A circular variable filter spectroradiometer was used to obtain spectral radiation data from the exhaust of a J85-GE-5 turbojet engine. Xylene was added to JP-4 to simulate the aromatic content of oil shale fuels. Radiation data were obtained at each of seven instrument locations with the engine operating at four power levels.
