Abstract:

This report represents in essence an overview presented by the authors at a seminar sponsored by the U.S. Army Research Office ARO in April 1977 to promote basic research in the area of Diesel Fuel Stability. This report provides a review of the general topic of fuel deterioration with primary emphasis on diesel or distillate fuels used in compression ignition engines which power the majority of Army tactical and combat vehicles. Selected field problems regarding fuel stability and related problems are presented and the status of on-going research and development programs are outlined. This information has been prepared to place in perspective the background and field problems which have prompted current research activities to detect, predict, and prevent fuel stability associated equipment failures. A selected bibliography used as the basis for the review portion of this report and as a source for additional fuel stability information has been provided. Author
