AMF Projects
AMF projects cover a range of topics including fuel comparisons, measurement methods and standardisation issues, but also deal with broader issues such as life cylce analysis, efficiency and deployment strategies. Details on each of the projects are provided on subpages. To access these either follow the link in Table 1 and Table 2 below (ordered by topics) or go to the chronological listing of projects below these tables.
Information derived from these projects on specific fuels is displayed in the Fuel Info section.
