Abstract : This report summarizes work aimed at the formulation of JP-4 fuel emulsions which reduce the fire hazards associated with JP-4. Two fuel emulsions were formulated and completely characterized during the course of this program. Studies were also carried out to develop techniques for determining contamination, drop size, and a simple yield stress method for fuel emulsions. On the basis of the findings in this program, several recommendations have been made with respect to improving emulsion stability, atomization in nozzles, and yield stress retention.
