|Summary||This project supports the ONR initiative to investigate and characterize the fuel and combustion properties of bio-fuels for JP-5 and F-76 turbine fuels. Conventional ASTM and MILSPEC tests will be used along with emerging synthetic turbine fuel standards, and knowledge of "fit for performance" measures to assist the Navy in certifying and accepting for use pure and blended alternate fuels for navy tactical use in near shore and global demonstrations. In addition fundamental combustion tests will be conducted to identify potential problems, such as lean blowout, combustion instabilities, and flash-back. Requirements and protocols for certification and use in a variety of naval facility applications will be outlined.|
