Handbook Of Coal Analysis (Free PDF)

File Size: 2.25 Mb

Coal is an extremely complex material and exhibits a wide range of physical properties. The rapidly expanding use of coal in the twentieth century made it necessary to devise acceptable methods for coal analysis with the goal of correlating composition and properties with behavior. It is only by assiduously using careful analyses of coal that the various aspects of coal usage can be achieved in an environmentally acceptable manner. As a part of the multifaceted program of coal evaluation, new methods are continually being developed and the already accepted methods may need regular modification to increase the accuracy of the technique as well as the precision of the results. Furthermore, proper interpretation of the data resulting from the analysis of coal requires an understanding of the significance of the analytical data.

This book deals with the various aspects of coal analysis and provides a detailed explanation of the necessary standard tests and procedures that are applicable to coal in order to help define coal behavior relative to usage and environmental issues. The first items that the book covers (after nomenclature and terminology) are related to sampling, accuracy of analysis, and precision of analysis. These important aspects are necessary to provide reproducibility and repeatability of the analytical data derived from the various test methods. The book then goes on to provide coverage of the analysis of coal by various test methods, as well as the application and interpretation of the data to provide the reader with an understanding the quality and performance of coal. A glos-sary of terms that will be useful to the reader is also included. Each term is defined in a language that will convey the meaning to the reader in a clear and understandable way.
