Abstract : At elevated temperatures, hydrocarbon jet fuels tend to form deposits which decrease heat exchanger efficiency and plug screens and filter elements. In order to quantify this tendency so that it may be predicted, it is necessary to obtain comparative test results on a simulated aircraft fuel system and small-scale test devices. In this report, the thermal stability of a fuel tested in the Advanced Aircraft Fuel System Simulator is quantified in terms of the amount of deposit formed. The quantification of deposit formation is determined under cyclic conditions (mission profiles) and two types of steady state test conditions (steady-state and steady-state-varied flow). (Author)
