Fuels for GasTurbine AeroEngines

Fuels for GasTurbine AeroEngines THE advent of gasturbines as power plants for military and civil aircraft has demonstrated certain actual and potential advantages over the use of conventional piston engines which ensure the increased adoption and importance of this type of prime mover. This increased use of gasturbines in the aircraft field has necessitated careful reconsideration of the fuel supply position in the light of the new engine requirements. It is clear therefore that a detailed knowledge of all aspects of fuel performance in gasturbinepowered aircraft is needed in order to enable the necessary usable fuel supply position to be assessed, and any resulting problems to be surmounted. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

THE advent of gasturbines as power plants for military and civil aircraft has demonstrated certain actual and potential advantages over the use of conventional piston engines which ensure the increased adoption and importance of this type of prime mover. This increased use of gasturbines in the aircraft field has necessitated careful reconsideration of the fuel supply position in the light of the new engine requirements. It is clear therefore that a detailed knowledge of all aspects of fuel performance in gasturbinepowered aircraft is needed in order to enable the necessary usable fuel supply position to be assessed, and any resulting problems to be surmounted.
