Abstract:

Tests were conducted on a full-scale C-141 aircraft fuel system simulator to evaluate system and component operation using antimisting kerosene fuels Jet A fuel with FM-9 additive. A typical aircraft flight profile was simulated with the tank-to-engine fuel feed system operating. Tests were also conducted to evaluate the tank quantity gaging system accuracy, tank refuel valve operation and fuel transfer ejector operation. Fuels tested included Jet A, .30 FM-9 AMK, .35 FM-9 AMK and .40 FM-9 AMK. Flammability tests were conducted on selected fuel samples to evaluate degradation caused by the above tests. Author
