The focus of this study is the calculation of the laminar burning speed of JP-8, oxygen, and helium mixtures at high temperatures and pressures. Two constant volume combustion vessels were used for the analysis. The spherical vessel was primarily used for the collection of pressure data from which the burning speed was calculated. A cylindrical vessel was also used in conjunction with a shadowgraph system to observe the flame structure and the onset of instability. Observations of JP-8 with both nitrogen and helium as diluents were made in the cylindrical vessel and it was seen that at a temperature of 200° C over the range of 1-8 atmospheres pressure and equivalence ratios of 0.7-1.0 with helium as the diluent, the flame was laminar throughout its combustion. Pressure measurements of JP-8 and oxygen with helium as the diluent were then made in the spherical vessel. Laminar burning speed of JP-8 with oxygen and helium has been calculated using the spherical vessel pressure data for this range of temperatures, pressures and equivalence ratios. Power law correlations for burning speeds have been developed for these results.
