Standard Test Method for Heat of Combustion of Hydrocarbon Fuels by Bomb Calorimeter (High-Precision Method)
|Publication Date:||1 January 1988|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the heat of combustion of hydrocarbon fuels. It is designed specifically for use with aviation turbine fuels when the permissible difference between duplicate determinations is of the order of 0.1 % (Note 1). It can be used for a wide range of volatile and nonvolatile materials where slightly greater differences in precision can be tolerated.
NOTE 1--In order to attain this accuracy, strict adherence to all details of the procedure is essential since the error contributed by each individual measurement that affects the accuracy shall be kept below 0.02 %, insofar as possible,
1.2 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. For specific hazard statements, see 7.6, 7.8, Note 6, 11.6 and Note A1.1.
1.3 The values in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.
