Abstract : The article deals with the effect of low ambient temperatures on the conditions of flow of fuel in an airplane - turbine engine system. A discussion is given of the process of increase of hydraulic resistances in fuel systems as a result of changes in fuel viscosity and contamination of the fuel filters with crystals of hydrocarbons, tars and ice crystals which are precipitated from the fuel and can impair the operation of a turbine engine. The formation of ice on parts of the fuel system is considered, and methods are indicated for improving the conditions of filtration of fuels by chemical means and by modifications of design.
