Fuels for Advanced Air-Breathing Weapon Systems 650804

Properties and problems of jet fuels used in present military aircraft are compared with those intended for use in future high Mach number aircraft. Fuels are under development with improved thermal stability and heat sink capacity. These include conventional hydrocarbon fuels as well as those utilizing vaporizing and endothermic reactions to obtain higher heat absorbing capacity. Boron slurry fuels, high density fuels, and cryogenic hydrocarbons are being developed for possible use in special applications.
