    The antimisting additive ((FM-9) was tested in terms of its propulsion systems performance. The effect of the additive on engine operation was evaluated, operating problems were identified, the adaptability of engines to antimisting kerosene was assessed, and the potential viability of this fuel for use in present and future fan jet engines was determined

    The use of AntiMisting Kerosene (AMK) in turbojet engines

    The effect of antimisting kerosene (AMK) flow characteristics on fan jet engines and the impact of degradation requirements on the fuel system was evaluated. It was determined from the present program that AMK fuel cannot be used without predegradation, although some degradation occurs throughout the fuel feed system, expecially in the fuel pumps. There is a tendency toward FM-9 AMK additive agglomeration and gel formation when the liquid flows at a critical velocity through very small passages. The data indicate this phenomenon to be a function of the degree of degradation, the passage size, the differential pressure, the fluid temperature, and the accumulated flow time. Additionally, test results indicate that the long term cumulative effects of this phenomenon may require more degradation than the theoretical requirement determined from short term tests

    Fabrication of graphite/epoxy cases for orbit insertion motors

    Get PDF
    The fabrication procedures are described for filament-wound rocket motor cases, approximately 26.25 inches long by 25.50 inches diameter, utilizing graphite fibers. The process utilized prepreg tape which consists of Fortafil 4-R fibers in the E-759 epoxy resin matrix. This fabrication effect demonstrated an ability to fabricate high quality graphite/epoxy rocket motor cases in the 26.25 inch by 25.50 inch size range
