The results of previous catalytic cracking experiments have quantified the cooling capabilities, i.e., using endothermic reactions to absorb energy generated by the propulsion system. The focus was on selecting liquid fuels and reactor operating conditions that produce desirable reaction products with high heat sink capabilities. In the present study, we examined the combustion properties of JP-10 that have been modified by thermal and catalytic cracking. The goals of our program are to understand the implications for pulse- detonation engine performance when operating with modified fuels.
