Abstract : Three AFRAPT trainees were in residence as graduate students at Princeton during the period 1 Sept. 1986 - 30 Aug. 1987. These students spent their summers working at General Electric-Cincinnati, Pratt and Whitney-East Hartford and United Technologies Research Center. All three students have worked in problems related to combustion. One recently completed a M.S.E. thesis and accepted a position at AVCO-Lycoming to continue working in the aircraft jet engine field. Mr. Konopka is now directing his research attention to complex chemical kinetic mechanisms of combustion processes. Mr. Emdee's research topic is the oxidation of aromatic fuels. Mr. Kappelmeier accepted a position at AVCO-Lycoming in Connecticut and will be working on gas turbines. Mr. Robert J. Lawson combustion of heavy fuels. Keywords: Aero propulsion technology trainees; Combustion stability.
