The manual is for use as a guide in research projects concerned with fuel combustion. Basically, it describes and discusses standard methods of sampling and analysis for a variety of hydrocarbon fuels. The analyses covered are those of prime concern to the combustion engineer; no attempt is made to cover all analyses that may be required in a complete environmental assessment of any fuel combustion process. For each fuel covered, the manual indicates the analyses that are likely to be required, the preferred method of analysis, and available sampling procedures. For each method of analysis listed (preferred plus alternates, in many cases), the manual summarizes the method, discusses its applicability, and describes its precision. The manual covers gaseous fuels, liquid petroleum fuels, waste lubricating oil, shale oil, coal liquids, methyl fuel, coal, coke, refuse-derived solid fuels, and peat. The appendices give: the availability of Standard Reference Materials for fuel-related analyses; laboratory directories; typical values (or ranges) of parameters specified for each fuel; and results of fuel analyses conducted by the contractor.
