Abstract:

The procedure described here to estimate effective heating value of wood or bark fuel is based on calculating the difference between theoretical maximum thermal value higher heating value of wood materials and estimates of unavoidable heat losses of furnace combustion. Unavoidable heat losses of furnace combustion are principally caused by woodborne moisture and hydrogen and any excesses of air admitted to the furnace.
