Abstract:

This report highlights studies performed in support of the development of advanced jet fuels, including JP-8100, JP-900, and endothermic fuels. For the development of JP-8100 fuel, we have tested hundreds of additives in both small and large scale test devices. We formulated combinations of the best additives detergentdispersant, hindered phenol antioxidant, and metal deactivator and demonstrated their efficacy in reducing deposition under realistic aircraft conditions in large-scale simulator rigs. We optimized the concentrations of these additives for maximum effectiveness and minimum cost. We performed extensive studies of the compatibility of these fuel additives with current and future aircraft fuel system materials. We determined that the current best additives show no negative effects on both metallic and non-metallic fuel system materials. We also performed extensive studies on the fundamental processes of fuel oxidation, deposition, and pyrolysis. We made progress in support of development of future fuels such as JP-900 and endothermic fuels. Data set summaries of the much of the data obtained during the contract period are contained in the accompanying volume entitled, Combustion and Heat Transfer Volume 2 - Advanced Jet Fuels Data Sets.
