For the first time, petroleum industry professionals have a document that explains the problems that microbes cause to fuels and fuel systems, and also provides the tools for recognizing and controlling microbial contamination - saving millions of dollars annually in fuel system damage. This new ASTM manual provides clear and accessible insight into the nature of fuel and fuel system biodeterioration, sampling requirements, test methods, and remediation practices. As a complement to ASTM D 6469 Standard Guide for Microbial Contamination in Fuels and Fuel Systems, this new publication provides

Dwindling petroleum supplies and growing environmental concerns are significantly impacting the cost of petro-fuel and its infrastructure. The search for alternative fuel sources has led to ethanol, a gasoline substitute that is already in the marketplace as Gasohol and E-85. But large-scale production of corn-based ethanol is controversial as it threatens the world’s food supply. There are alternatives, however: Brazil uses sugar cane, which is up to six times more productive in energy conversion.After the energy crisis of the 1970s, there was a lot of misinformation about the cost of indiv

Arroyo reviewed the U.S. Army1s historical uses of temporary pipelines and surveyed future scenarios to develop a list of potential requirements for temporary petroleum pipeline structure. Against this list, existing and planned pipeline units and equipment were assessed across a variety of performance dimensions. Because the best choice will be sensitive to the decisionmaker1s assessment of the environment, a decision-support table is provided.

This book is intended to be a practical reference to all scientists and graduate students who are seeking to define a mathematical model for Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) simulation. At present, there is a strong interest from both industry and academia in SOFC modeling, but the resources are currently limited to technical papers, which usually fail to provide basic understanding of the phenomena taking place in an SOFC, as well as to describe the different approaches needed for different requirements. This situation is in contrast with the present demand in SOFC modeling, coming from scientis

Report is a result of a review of the available toxicologic, epidemiologic, and other revelant data on JP-8 (jet-propulsion fuel 8) to evaluate independently the Department of Defense’s interim permissible exposure level. Chapters include discussion on various effects of JP-8 on humans and experimental animals. Softcover. Softcover.
