- ... In the fuel cooling system of an engine, the heating of aviation kerosene causes it to exhibit complicated, unsteady physicochemical processes and forms undesirable coke deposition. To understand these processes better, we investigated the coupling relationship between turbulent flow, heat transfer, autoxidation, and deposition reactions of fuel in a cooling heat exchanger. The experiments were pe ...
