In this paper, the laminar burning speed of Jet Fuel (Jet-A) and three different samples of JP-8 are investigated. The autoignition properties of JP-8 fuels are also explored. These experiments have been done in a spherical vessel at high temperatures and pressures with different equivalence ratios. The pressure data were recorded by a Kistler pressure transducer, and intense fluctuations of pressure data were observed during the explosion of the unburned gas zone. It is observed that Jet Fuel and JP-8/air mixtures have very similar burning speed. Also, autoignition of these fuels is very sensitive to a specific range of temperature rather than pressure.
