Science - Petroleum Eng/Sci / índice de cetano
 English term or phrase: to the nearest tenth El texto describe las formas de determinar el índice de cetano de combustibles para motores diesel. El ensayo es el siguiente: "An engine test designed to evaluate fuel ignition delay characteristics was developed in the mid-1930s, the ASTM Test For Ignition Quality of Diesel Fuels by the Cetane Method (D 613). This test involves operating a standard, single cylinder, variable compression ratio engine using a specified fuel flow rate and time of injection (injection advance) for the fuel sample and each of two bracketing reference fuels of known cetane number. The engine compression ratio is adjusted for each fuel to produce a specified ignition delay, and the cetane number is calculated **to the nearest tenth** by interpolation of the compression ratio values."
