Abstract

The paper presents issues related to the process of thermal degradation of jet fuel. This process is of a different nature depending on temperature and time, in which the fuel is subjected to thermal action. The standard method for testing the jet fuel thermal stability seems to be insufficient, therefore, the conduct of the research on a dedicated test rig was taken in this paper. The assessment of the fuel degradation process was carried out on the basis of determination of hydroperoxide and acid numbers as signs of the occurred process. The article has been prepared within the research project No. 2011/01/D/ST8/06567 funded by the National Science Centre in Poland.
