Description

The performance of MIL-F-5624A fuels, grades JP-3 and JP-4, was investigated in an axial-flow turbojet engine over a range of altitude conditions of 10,000 to 55,000 feet. Examination of the fuel flow, combustion efficiency, and net thrust specific fuel consumption showed the grade JP-4 fuel to be slightly inferior to the grade JP-3 fuel, although the altitude ignition limits were essentially equal for the two fuels over a range of flight Mach numbers and fuel-inlet temperatures.

National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics Collection

The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA) was a U.S. federal agency founded on March 3, 1915 to undertake, promote, and institutionalize aeronautical research. On October 1, 1958 the agency was dissolved, and its assets and personnel transferred to the newly created National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
