Distinct from short-circuiting, incomplete combustion is defined as the fraction of the energy in the trapped fuel
that is not released during combustion.
Second, FPAS is only a tool and can lie to you if you let it, especially if you have trapped fuel
An earthquake revealed in shale rock previously trapped fuel
He now faced the problem of having 4,000 pounds of trapped fuel
in addition to his gear retraction failure, at night with poor weather.
This would enable the trapped fuel
to drain into the engine and drop the pressure.
That way, all losses, except the loss through scavenging losses, were referenced to the trapped fuel
At eight miles, we were transferring gas only from the main bags, and had 2,800 pounds of trapped fuel
in the wings.
With 12,000 pounds of trapped fuel
, the SOF calculated that Lt Howland's aircraft was too heavy to take an approach end cable, due to higher-than-normal approach speed, and also too heavy to stop on the wet runway for the same reason.
As a result of continually cross-bleeding the right engine to maintain reliable flight controls (after a series of subsequent flight-control failures), we trapped fuel
in the No.
Without bleed air, I was left without normal oxygen, no ECS pressurization or cooling, no throttle boost, and 3,400 pounds of trapped fuel
in nay external fuel tanks.
We were concerned about possible trapped fuel
on the left side, and we were relieved to see the left system start to burn down.
Our new problem became the 6,600 pounds of trapped fuel
in the No.
