Abstract:

The widening of fuel specifications will lead to fuels having a lower hydrogen content. This change will influence the heat transfer in combustion chambers, mainly through increased radiation from increased carbon in the flame. The influence of ring compounds is not very clear and - to date - the best correlation is with fuel hydrogen content. Due to this, the Luminosity-Factor is still the most convenient tool for the prediction of fuel effects upon heat transfer. Author
