Abstract:

This report documents the results of the first phase of a two-part program aimed at developing for the U. S. Air Force experimentally tested computer models to predict worst-case potentials for air quality degradation resulting from use of current and potential future turbine engine jet fuels. The development and testing of such models requires an adequate data base derived from appropriate environmental chamber experiments and laboratory studies. In Phase I of this two-phase program, a total of 131 environmental chamber experiments were carried out in a approx. 6400-liter, all Teflon indoor environmental chamber and several kinetic measurements were made in order to obtain data required for model development. The chamber experiments included 47 single component-NOx-air irradiations of various representative fuel constituents and potential future fuel impurities, 15 fuel-NOx-air irradiations employing one whole and six synthetic surrogate fuels, and 69 control or characterization runs. This technical report is divided into two volumes. Volume I contains a detailed summary of the experimental results and a discussion of their significance. Volume II contains a tabulation of the environmental chamber data gathered during the course of the experimental phase of this program.
