This paper discusses the results of tests conducted to determine the effect of the direct burning of an emulsified JP-4 fuel in a gas turbine engine under various environmental conditions.
Engine operation, including starting and transient operation, with emulsified fuel was essentially the same as that with liquid JP-4 during all phases of the testing. Engine testing was terminated when a “hot section” corrosion problem, generated by one of the additives in the emulsified fuel was encountered.
