Abstract : Construction, check-out/verification and initial tests of a full scale gas turbine combustor test facility were accomplished. Water cooled gas sampling and stagnation probes and a multiple wavelength light extinction measurement apparatus for determination of mean particulate size were evaluated. The facility will be used for subsequent fuel composition/fuel additive evaluations to determine the resulting effects on soot production and consumption rates. (Author)
