Soot Emissions from Aviation Fuels



The Soot emission research was started under the JCATI project in 2013 on the bunsen flame to understand the incipient sooting behavior of different aviation fuels and fuel blends. The project now employs a Meker burner to reduce entrainment effects on combustion and the inner flame cones. The future prospects for the study aims at determining particle number of soot emissions for these fuels.
