May 1951


An experimental investigation was conducted to determine the combustion properties of several magnesium-hydrocarbon slurry blends and to indicate the feasibility of the application of slurry-type fuels to high-speed aircraft. The magnesium fuel blends were evaluated in a 6-inch diameter simulated tail-pipe burner.
