Abstract

Paper presents research results of jet fuels thermal degradation exposed to different thermal loads. This problem is especially important as it influences safety of aircraft operation. Jet fuel in modern engines is used in heat transfer and cooling of different construction elements. Together with new engines’ construction and materials used thermal loads affecting jet fuel become more severe, and thus in aircraft fuel system not well understood phenomena occur, resulting with plugging injectors, valves and affecting elastomers. They affect engine operation and should be well and carefully described and understood to prevent them. Research results presented here are the first data in Poland dealing with jet fuels’ thermal degradation problem. Article is aimed to present the mechanism of jet fuel thermal degradation under different temperatures. The project has been funded by National Science Centre granted with decision no. DEC-2011/01/D/ST8/06567.
