This handbook provides readers with guidance on testing and analyzing coal. It offers step-by-step test method protocols for proximate and ultimate analysis, mineral matter, physical and electrical properties, thermal and mechanical properties, and spectroscopic and solvent properties. It also explains the meaning of test results and how those results can predict coal

Overview

This handbook provides readers with guidance on testing and analyzing coal. It offers step-by-step test method protocols for proximate and ultimate analysis, mineral matter, physical and electrical properties, thermal and mechanical properties, and spectroscopic and solvent properties. It also explains the meaning of test results and how those results can predict coal behavior and its corresponding environmental impact during use. Emphasis is on relevant ASTM standards and test methods, including corresponding ISO and BSI test method numbers. The handbook will be useful for analytical chemists and engineers in the coal industry. Speight has written other books on fossil fuel processing and environmental issues.
