Abstract:

The purpose of the ground test was to determine if there was any degradation to the F-4 ground start during cold weather with the aircraft serviced with JP-8 fuel. Also, several proposals for improving the F-4 low temperature starting capability were tested. Various combinations of fuel, JP-4 and JP-8, and engine specific gravity settings, .78 and .82 were tested to simulate actual field situations.
