Abstract
A SELF-CONTAINED, ULTRASONIC ULLAGE SPACE COMPOSITION DETECTOR BASED ON THE SPEED OF SOUND OF THE CONTAINED ATMOSPHERE IS A FEASIBLE METHOD OF MEASURING THE CHANGE IN THE RATIO OF AIR TO JET FUEL VAPOR. THIS DETECTOR WOULD BE USED TO MONITOR THE COMPOSITION OF THE ATMOSPHERE CONTAINED IN THE ULLAGE SPACE OF FUEL TANK SPECIMENS. FOR EVERY MIXTURE OF AIR AND JET FUEL, A SPECIFIC SPEED OF SOUND WILL EXIST. A SPECIFIC MIXTURE OF AIR AND JET FUEL CAN BE REPRODUCED BY MEASURING THE SPEED OF SOUND OF THIS MIXTURE. WITH ADEQUATE TEST DATA ON THE EXPLOSIVE MIXTURES OF AIR AND THE FUEL, A DETERMINATION OF THE CHANGE IN RATIOS OF THE AIR AND JET FUEL COULD BE DEDUCED.
