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. (Author)
