Coal Analysis book from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Coal Analysis
by James G. Speight

Handbook of Coal Analysis provides readers with everything they need to know about testing and analyzing coal.

Handbook of Coal Analysis explains the meaning of test results and how these results can predict coal behavior and its corresponding environmental impact during use.

Handbook of Coal Analysis includes:

  • Detailed presentation of necessary standard tests and procedures
  • Explanation of coal behavior relative to its usage alongside the corresponding environmental issues
  • Coverage of nomenclature, terminology, sampling, and accuracy and precision of analysis
  • Step-by-step test method protocols for proximate analysis, ultimate analysis, mineral matter, physical and electrical properties, thermal properties, mechanical properties, spectroscopic properties, and solvent properties
  • Emphasis on relevant American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards and test methods, including corresponding International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and British Standards Institution (BSI) test method numbers
To assist readers in understanding the material, a glossary of terms is provided.

Each term is defined in straightforward language that enables readers to better grasp complex concepts and theory.

References at the end of each chapter lead readers to more in-depth discussions of specialized topics.

Handbook of Coal Analysis is an essential reference for analytical chemists, process chemists, and engineers in the coal industry as well as other professionals and researchers who are looking to coal as a means to decrease dependence on foreign oil sources and devise more efficient, cleaner methods of energy production.
