The project will use data from Area #1 (ASCENT 026) to understand how jet fuel composition and/or chemical properties relate to important combustion properties. The project will also develop reaction models for jet fuel combustion. These models will be used by researchers in Area #4 for predicting the combustion of jet fuels in engines.

This research is part of the National Jet Fuels Combustion Program and will satisfy Area #2, Chemical Kinetics Model Development and Evaluation.
