HEATING VALUE OF FUELS
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Published May 01, 1990 by SAE International in United States
The heating value or heat of combustion is a measure of the energy available from the fuel. The fraction or percentage of the heat of combustion that is converted to useful work is a measure of the thermal efficiency of an engine. Thus, a knowledge of the heat of combustion of the fuel is basic to the engineering of automotive engines. This SAE Information Report provides information on the standardized procedures for determining the heat of combustion of fuels that may be used for automotive engines.

Fuels and Lubricants TC 7 Fuels Committee
The Fuels Technical Committee 7 is responsible for the development of SAE Standards, Recommended Practices, Information Reports and related information pertinent to the technical aspects of fuels for internal combustion engines used in ground vehicles. The Truck and Bus J1616 Task Force has been formed under the committee's direction. Participants in the SAE Fuels Technical Committee include OEMs, suppliers, consulting firms, government and other interested parties.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
