Thermal Stability Testing of Aviation Turbine Fuel — A History


The paper traces the history of high temperature problems in aircraft jet fuel systems and outlines the parallel progress of fuel specifications to control the problems. The development of laboratory equipment to implement these controls is described together with the testing used to validate the control limits. Shortcomings of the various types of control equipment are reviewed.
