1.1 This test method covers the quantitative determination of the derived cetane number of conventional diesel fuel oils, diesel fuel oils containing cetane number improver additives, and is applicable to products typical of Specification D975, Grades No.1-D and 2-D regular, low and ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel oils, European standard EN590, and Canadian standards CAN/CGSB-3.517 and CAN/CGSB3.6. The test method may be applied to the quantitative determination of the derived cetane number of blends of fuel oils containing biodiesel material (for example, Specification D975, biodiesel, and diesel fuel oil blending components.
1.2 This test method utilizes a constant volume combustion chamber with direct fuel injection into heated, compressed synthetic air. A dynamic pressure wave is produced from the combustion of the sample. An equation converts the ignition delay and the combustion delay determined from the dynamic pressure curve to a derived cetane number (DCN).
1.3 This test method covers the ignition delay ranging from 2.8 to 6.5 ms and combustion delay ranging from 5.5 to 120 ms (30.0 to 65.0 DCN). However, the precision stated only covers the range of DCN from 35 to 60.
