Experimental Studies on the Combustion Characteristics of Alternative Jet Fuels

Conventional Jet-A and six alternative jet fuels, including three Fischer–Tropsch “Synthetic Paraffinic Kerosene” fuels and three “Hydrotreated Renewable Jet” fuels, have been experimentally investigated to obtain their fundamental combustion characteristics in terms of Derived Cetane Number, autoignition response, laminar flame speed, and extinction stretch rate for premixed combustion.
