Abstract:

An important Air Force objective is to develop technology to allow the utilization of aviation fuels with a broader range of properties including lower hydrogen content and higher aromaticity. The objectives of this program are to develop a data base and modeling capabilities to relate vaporization, pyrolysis, and soot formation to the properties of the fuel, the atomizer and combustion conditions. The benefits of reduced soot in jet engines are significant increased life, improved reliability of combustor liners and reduced pollution. In addition, reduction of the IR emission from military jet engines is important for lowering an aircrafts visibility for tracking and targeting.
