Abstract:

This program evaluated the comparative results between ASTM D613 Cetane Number testing an ASTM D6890 Derived Cetane Number testing. Particular emphasis was placed on evaluating fuels, and blends thereof, having cetane values outside of the normal range of the methods, both high and low. The Derived Cetane Number was found to be suitable for routine use in determining the cetane value of distillate hydrocarbons.
