This book is concerned with the production, properties and performance of hydrocarbon fuels, both liquids and gases. The subject matter is treated under the following chapter headings:- (1) hydrocarbons as a source of energy. (2) structure and properties of hydrocarbon molecules. (3) thermochemistry of fuels. (4) fuel combustion equilibria. (5) basic properties and tests of liquid fuels. (6) additional properties and tests. (7) fuel-processing, and product applications. (8) fuel handling. (9) fuel performance in reciprocating-piston engines. (10) fuel performance in continuous combustions. (11) emissions from hydrocarbon fuel utilisation. (12) alternative fuels and direct conversion. Details of representative hydrocarbon properties are appended, together with typical commercial fuel specifications.
