ASTM WK37391

    Revision of D7170 - 11 Standard Test Method for Determination of Derived Cetane Number (DCN) of Diesel Fuel Oils—Fixed Range Injection Period, Constant Volume Combustion Chamber Method

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D7170 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.01 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    There is a need to include harmonized definitions of biodiesel fuel (B100) and biodiesel blend (BXX) into the terminology areas of D613, D6890, D7170 and D7668. This ballot involves a proposal to include into D7170 the same definition as that which can presently be found in D396, D975, D4175 and D7467.
