Analytical and characterization methods used in fuel science and applied to fuel processing, combustion, and conversion are emphasized. F SC 503 Analytical Methods in Fuel Science (3)The course will focus on the analytical methods that are used in fuel science for the characterization of fuels and their products during combustion, conversion, processing, and utilization. Students will be exposed to the theory and practical applications of such analytical methods as chromatography and spectrometry. Methods for the analysis of the data obtained with these analytical techniques will be discussed. In particular, the potential for interference and confounding results and techniques for establishing reproducibility and error bars in the experimental data and results will be explored.
