Abstract : The effects of typical vapor fuel operating conditions on the operation of a vapor phase fuel heat exchanger system are being evaluated with the use of a hot fuel calorimeter. Data are now being obtained on the tube-to-fuel heat transfer coefficients, enthalpy of the fuel and the amount of fuel decomposition for the special JP-6. The data presently available show the effect of pressure on fuel enthalpy and on the tube-tofuel heat transfer coefficients. (Author)
