Abstract
The availability of crude oils from the Alberta tar sands and the trend to more economical refinery operation is expected to change the properties of fuel oils and affect their combustion performance in Diesel and gas turbine engines. The report reviews experimental methods used for studying liquid fuel combustion as it occurs in Diesels and gas turbines, and recommends a system suitable for evaluating the combustion characteristics of tar sands and other future distillate fuels. The present work focuses on "bench studies" - small scale laboratory experiments - rather than full-scale engine tests.
