Effect of fuel variables on carbon formation in turbojet-engine combustors

Edmund R. Jonash, Jerrold D. Wear, William P. Cook

Report presents the results of an investigation of the effects of fuel properties and of a number of fuel additives on combustion-chamber carbon deposition and exhaust-gas smoke formation in a single tubular turbojet-engine combustor. Limited tests were conducted with a number of the fuels in several full-scale turbojet engines to verify single-combustor data.
