Abstract:

Apparatus was designed by which gas temperatures could be measured by suction type thermocouple and be observed and recorded. Combustion and fuel studies were made. Combustion was satisfactory with propane and air mixtures but not with fuel-oil and air. High chrome steel was investigated by X-ray and diffraction methods to analyze oxide scale formed at high temperatures. Several materials were tested to determine their value as fuels for rocket or jet engines.
