ASTM D6518 Coal Bias Testing
Bias testing of mechanical coal sampling systems is critical for ensuring that coal properties are accurately measured. Many companies often struggle with processing bias test data as specified by ASTM D6518.
DataWolff automates all three tests specified in this standard that include: the Student-t test; Hotelling’s T Squared test; and the Wilcoxon Signed Rank Non Parametric test. The automated data analyses create workbooks that indicate whether the system passed or failed, or whether the results were inconclusive. In addition time series of all data are automatically created. The plots below present ellipses for a Hotelling’s T Squared test that provide a clear interpretation of a test. Download the workbooks referenced by the links below to review example results from the ASTM D6518 analysis scripts.
