Abstract : Performance evaluation of a typical gas turbine engine combustion system was conducted to determine the combustion characteristics of two gelled Jet A fuels (Jet A plus 1.5% N-coco-gamma-hydroxybutyramide, and Jet A plus 2% of a styrene type polymer). Testing of an emulsified fuel was terminated due to separation of the emulsion by the shearing action of the boost pump in the system. The conclusions reached: (1) indicate the feasibility of employing gelled fuels from a combustion standpoint and, (2) demonstrate filtration, atomization, and deposition problems. (Author)
