For entineering calculations in the gas phase,
correlations have been established between smoke point
heights and heat of combustion and yields of CO and
particulates. Smoke point heights reported in the
literature were modified such that all the data,
including those measured by us, were consistent. Based
on the data for 165 fuels from the literature and the
data measured by us for 16 fuels, relationships have
been suggested for the engineering calculations of heat
of complete combustion, chemical heat of combustion and
its convective and radiative components, and yields of
CO and particulates as functions of the molecular weight
for fuels with aliphatic and aromatic, saturated and
unsaturated bonds betewwn C and H; C, H and O; C, H, N
and C, H and S atoms.
