Abstract:

We report results of high-temperature shock tube research aimed at improving knowledge of the combustion behavior of diesel, jet and related fuels. Research was conducted in four Stanford shock tube facilities and focused on the following topics 1 development of the aerosol shock tube 2 ignition delay time measurements of gaseous jet fuels JP-8 and Jet-A and surrogate components at high pressures and low temperatures 3 laser absorption measurements of species time-histories for OH radicals and alkanes 4 ignition delay times of n-dodecane, jet fuel and diesel using the aerosol shock tube technique and 5 improving shock tube performance and modeling.
