    An experimental study is conducted for the laminar, atmospheric pressure, sooting, coflow diffusion flames of prevaporized Jet A-1 and four synthetic jet fuels to compare their sooting characteristics and flame structures. Soot volume fraction, species concentration, and temperature profiles are measured, using the laser extinction measurement method, gas chromatography, and fine wire thermocouples, respectively. To evaluate the sooting tendency of the fuels, their smoke point heights are measured using the ASTM D1322 method and compared. The synthetic jet fuels under investigation are (1) Fully Synthetic Jet Fuel (FSJF), which is a coal-to-liquids (CtL) kerosene plus some coal tar derived material from Sasol, (2) Fischer–Tropsch Synthetic Paraffinic Kerosene (FT-SPK), which is a gas-to-liquids (GtL) product from Shell, (3) SPK plus naphthenic cut (50% by volume), and (4) SPK plus hexanol (20% by volume). The threshold sooting index (TSI) of the proposed surrogate mixtures for the fuels are calculated and...
