Experiments are performed to study vibration effects on surface coke deposition of aviation hydrocarbon RP-3 under supercritical pressure. The flowing RP-3 kerosene is stressed to 5MPa, and heated up from 127°C to 450°C in a stainless tube (1.8mm I.D., 2.2mm O.D., 1Cr18Ni9Ti) with a constant heat flux, and the mass flow rate is 3g/s. The working fluids flow downward through an 1800mm long tube. The vibration frequency is set from 100Hz to 600Hz, covering the main frequencies of the combustion chamber vibration when it works. Compared with stable condition, vibration effects have a distinct impact on the flow resistance and heat transfer.

The amount of coke deposition reduced under all different frequencies with the maximize decline of 40.46%. Moreover, restraining efficiency is proportional to the vibration energy. Besides, vibration enhanced the heat transfer, the coefficient of which comes to a wave crest at the zone of second-order modes of response to the peak area with the biggest vibration energy.
