This paper presents the process used to determine the statistical uncertainty associated with eight solid fuels different properties. Provides a map of sampling to determine the sample sizes in the light of the uncertainties that are considered acceptable. The values obtained show that despite the heterogeneity of the fuel itself, a well­planned campaign of samples can extrapolate the properties of the samples from the entire lot with an uncertainty controlled and quantified.
