ASTM WK43585

    Work Item: ASTM WK43585 - 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

    In method D240, there is confusion in the units of energy equivalent (J versus MJ) and in quantity (g versus kg). D02.05.B would like to revise the method to clarify the heat of combustion units.
