ASTM WK39026

    Work Item: ASTM WK39026 - Revision of D240 - 09 Standard Test Method for Heat of Combustion of Liquid Hydrocarbon Fuels by Bomb Calorimeter

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D240 - 09

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.05 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    To allow an additional test method for hydrogen content by NMR (ASTM Method D7171) that will be more readily accessible than the current methods allowed in the calculation of gross heat of combustion and net heat of combustion.
