[Vol. 05.01] - Petroleum Products and Lubricants (I): D 56 - D 3348

Published annually in February. This volume contains 238 standards. Together, Volumes 05.01 through 05.04 feature over 630 standards, including specifications and test methods that fix standard property requirements for fuels, oils, solvents, and hexane. They also feature standard procedures for evaluating the properties of motor, diesel, biodiesel, aviation fuels, solvent hexane, and naphtha. Other standards focus on distillate and residual fuel oil, kerosine and illuminating oils. Some set down procedures for evaluating such properties as carbon residue, viscosity, cloud point, density, flash point, and sulfur content. Standard procedures detail how to measure the properties of natural and liquefied petroleum, pure light hydrocarbons, crude petroleum, wax and petrolatum, and hydraulic fluids. Tests and practices for evaluating the properties of film lubricants, lubricating greases, lubricating oil, used oils, cutting oils, and turbine oils appear under the heading of lubricants.

[Vol. 05.05] - Combustion Characteristics; Manufactured Carbon and Graphite Products; Catalysts

Published annually in February. This volume contains 123 standards. This volume contains test methods for rating motor, diesel, and aviation fuels. It also covers test methods that are used to determine the knocking or detonation characteristics of motor and aviation fuels and the ignition characteristics of diesel fuels. Some tests evaluate catalytic materials, while others feature standard tests and practices for performing chemical and physical tests on manufactured carbon and graphite products.

[Vol. 05.06] - Gaseous Fuels; Coal and Coke

Published annually in September. This volume contains 184 standards. Under the heading of gaseous fuels, this volume provides tables and practices for sampling and calculating thermophysical properties. In addition, several tests define methods for analyzing the properties of gaseous fuels. Other tests and practices evaluate properties of coal and coke.
