Ignition mechanisms of jet-A fuel vapor in a confined environment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Ignition limits of jet-A fuel vapor, as a function of the fuel loading using conventional electrical sparks was reported. Relevant ignition mechanisms for accidental ignition events, involving electrical contact sparks, were also presented and their capability to ignite fuel air mixtures at very low voltage was demonstrated.
