Jain, Sampat R and Sundararajan, Rajaraman (1981) New method of calculating calorific values from elemental compositions of fossil fuels. In: Fuel, 60 (11). pp. 1079-1082.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
A new method of calculating the calorific values of fossil fuels from their chemical composition has been developed, based on the concept that heats of reaction of stoichiometric fuel-oxidizer systems are rectilinearly related with the total oxidizing or reducing valancies of the mixture. The calorific value of fossil fuels has been shown to be directly related to the net reducing valencies of the fuel. The proposed method is simple and compares favourably with the other prominent methods reported in the literature.
