Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Combustion rig tests of an RQL (rich burn quick quench lean burn) gas turbine combustor and of a single concentric lean-burn combustor were performed using kerosene (Jet A1), 100% hydro-treated ester and fatty acid (HEFA) alternative jet fuel and their blends. The results showed a clear tendency of suppression of non-volatile PM (nvPM) emission with an increase in the blending ratio of HEFA. Combustion test results were examined with the help of basic atmospheric and high-temperature and high-pressure testing. Blowout conditions and flame oscillations are also discussed.
