Abstract:

Air Force and civilian jet aircraft are known to dump fuel from time to time. A study program was undertaken to determine, from in-situ measurements, the physical process occurring after clouds of vented fuel were dumped at altitudes. Drop sizes and densities were measured. These measurements were corrected by use of a multi-component JP-4 model. Based on corrected measurements, the fall rate and fate of fuel vented from a KC-135 were postulated. Author
