Broadening of aviation fuel specifications has been simulated using blends of gas oil and residual fuel oil. Radiation, smoke, and temperature measurements in an experimental combustor at various air pressure, inlet temperture, and air/fuel ratios showed a diminishing rate of increase of radiation with soot concentration and reduced sensitivity of smoke to fuel hydrogen content at higher combustor pressures.
