Description: Report presenting an investigation of several pure hydrocarbon fuels in a single tubular-type combustor in order to determine possible relations between combustor performance and fuel properties. The combustor temperature rise, combustion efficiency, and blow-out limits were determined with five liquid hydrocarbon fuels of high purity over a range of heat input and air-flow rates and at two inlet-air-temperature conditions. Performance parameters were selected to compare with the physical and fundamental combustion properties of the fuel.
