ANTIMISTING FUEL SPILLAGE/AIR SHEAR TESTS AT NAVAL WEAPONS CENTER

A test apparatus consisting of a large-scale airfoil located within a temperature-velocity-controlled airstream was used to evaluate the fire suppression afforded by FM9 antimisting fuel additive in Jet A. A homogeneous low turbulence airstream between 100 and 170 knots was used to obtain crash-survivable antimisting fuel kinematic data. It was demonstrated that FM 9 could be an effective antimisting agent. The failure envelope for FM9 in 27 C Jet A fuel was measured for agent concentrations from 0.3 to 0.5 percent and 32 C airflow velocities between 100 and 170 knots. (Author)
