Abstract : This investigation is concerned with the contribution of selected components and additives of high-temperature aircraft fuels to thermally induced deposits before and after 52 weeks storage at 130F. Of particular concern is the influence of these fuel constituents on thermal-stability quality of these jet fuels during storage. The study utilizes a micro fuel coker test apparatus to measure the thermal-stability of test fuels and blends. The contribution of selected fuel components, labeled with carbon-14, to deposit-forming mechanisms is determined by radioactive counting techniques. (Author)
