The performance of ammonia as a fuel for gas turbine application has been theoretically predicted. Regenerative and nonregenerative Brayton cycles were employed as theoretical models, and combustion products were treated as a chemical equilibrium reactive system. All calculations were carried out by programs developed for use on an IBM 7094 digital computer. The results indicate that ammonia should be superior to hydrocarbons as a fuel on the basis of output and efficiency, but poorer on the basis of fuel economy.
