Effect of water vapor on combustion of magnesium hydrocarbon slurry fuels in small-scale afterburner

Leonard K. Tower
Oct 1952

Both JP-3 fuel and a slurry of 60 percent powdered magnesium in JP-3 fuel were evaluated in a small-scale afterburner in the presence of large quantities of water vapor. From data obtained with the small-scale afterburner, the static sea-level performance was computed for turbojet engines augmented by combined water injection and magnesium-slurry afterburning.
