However, effective heat of combustion was almost the same for all samples.
Various tests have traditionally been used to rank the flammability of gases and liquids, including heat of combustion, flammability limits, flash point temperature, quenching distance, and minimum ignition energy (Lewis and von Elbe 1961; Coward and Jones 1952; Zabetakis 1965).
The heat of combustion of CO to carbon dioxide (CO) is three times greater than the heat of combustion of C to CO, so this represents a large potential energy source for the EAF.
The most common calorimeter is the bomb calorimeter, which determines the heat of combustion or calorific values of materials in a constant-volume container-a bomb.
