Abstract : A study defining feasibility and costs of preparation and utilization of coal mixture fuels at Navy bases was performed. The study established equipment requirements, flows, and capital and annual costs of coal-oil mixture and coal-water mixture preparation plants for Navy base heating systems operating between 100,000 lb/hr and 800,000 lb/hr of steam. Combustion properties of coal mixture fuels were analyzed. Procedures for calculating mixture fuel preparation and utilization costs at a typical Navy base were automated. The attached user manual was prepared for a computer program that calculates flows and costs for coal-fired steam and power generation facilities at Navy bases. The manual describes computational methods, program input, program output, program data tables, program execution, error processing, testing procedures, and code structure. Appendices include a sample run and a listing of program data tables. (Author)
