Abstract:

The overall technical objectives of this Phase I proposal are to establish shock-tube and continuous-flow experimental methodologies for evaluating alternative fuels relevant to hypersonic propulsion, and to perform feasibility studies of fuel blends, additives, and other means of generating radicals for chemical and physical enhancement of ignition and combustion. Specifically, the technical objectives for the shock tube and continuous flow experiments will involve developing precise control of pressure, temperature, molecular fuel species concentration of fuel blends, time-resolved assessment of the overall and chemical ignition delay from optical diagnostic methods (OH* emission and diode-laser absorption), and preliminary comparisons of alternative fuel blends, additives, and other ignition enhancement strategies.
