This paper presents recent results which contribute to the combustion technology base necessary for the future development of aircraft jet fuels from non-petroleum resources. Specifically, the effects of fuel hydrogen and nitrogen content were studied using a T56 combustor rig. Although most of this work has involved fuel blending to simulate alternate fuel properties, data acquired using an actual oil shale jet fuel were included. Future directions for alternate jet fuel combustion efforts are summarized. Recommendations range from an expanded scope of combustor and engine testing to required fundamental combustion research.
