Abstract : The evaluation of the power characteristics of fuels for modern gas-turbine engines should be done starting from their weight heat-producing capacity, density, and completeness of combustion corresponding to the altitude of flight. For improving the power characteristics of fuels for aviation gas-turbine engines, a greater amount of high-boiling fractions should go into their composition. The greatest power possibilities, which exceed by 10 to 13% those of modern jet fuels, are possessed by fuels which contain bicyclic naphthenic hydrocarbons that are derivatives of dicyclohexyl.
