Active Standard: D910 - 13a
The motion for this ballot was passed at the December 2012 ASTM D02.J02 meeting for the purpose of changing the format of Table 1 in D910. Currently Table 1 does not categorize or list specification requirements in a logical order. This becomes clear when Table 1 of D910 is compared to Table 1 of D1655, the jet fuel specification. Specifically, Table 1 of D1655 lists jet fuel properties by category while Table 1 of D910 does not and simply lists the properties in no particular order. Using categories, such as Composition, Volatility, Fluidity, Combustion Corrosion etc., organizes fuel properties in a logical fashion and lends itself to a clearer understanding of the significance of specific fuel properties and allows for simple comparisons of different fuels when appropriate. This ballot simply proposes changing the format of Table 1 by introducing property categories. D910 Table 1 would now appear as shown below: To address the above concerns, it is proposed that the title be changed.
