    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the measurement of the flame radiation characteristics of aviation turbine fuels and other similar distillate fuels expressed in terms of luminometer numbers. There is good correlation between smoke point (Test Method D 1322) and luminometer number which is presented in Appendix X1.

    This test method is being withdrawn due to very limited and declining use.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D02 on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, this test method was withdrawn in December 2006.
