IGNITION OF HYDRAULIC FLUIDS IN HIGH PRESSURE PIPE SYSTEMS.
PENNSYLVANIA STATE UNIV UNIVERSITY PARK
Research was continued on the study of physical processes which govern the ignition, by rapid compressions, of hydraulic fluids. Maximum gas temperature calculations were completed for the 1-12 inch I.D. test section. The results of these calculations are shown. Tests were started to evaluate the effect of downstream length on the temperature of the driven gas. The heating values of Mil 2190 and Cellulube were deter mined. A test program is underway in order to establish the accuracy of the numerical solu tion for the liquid charging process. Also see AD-417 599 to AD-417 610 and AD-417 612 to AD-417 614. Author
