Fuel Optimization

Fu´el
n. 1. Any matter used to produce heat by burning; that which feeds fire; combustible matter used for fires, as wood, coal, peat, etc.
2. Anything that serves to feed or increase passion or excitement.Artificial fuel
fuel consisting of small particles, as coal dust, sawdust, etc., consolidated into lumps or blocks.

v. t. 1. To feed with fuel.
Never, alas I the dreadful name,
That fuels the infernal flame.
- Cowley.
2. To store or furnish with fuel or firing.
Well watered and well fueled.
- Sir H. Wotton.


Noun 1. fuel - a substance that can be consumed to produce energy; "more fuel is needed during the winter months"; "they developed alternative fuels for aircraft"
Verb 1. fuel - provide with a combustible substance that provides emergy; "fuel aircraft, ships, and cars"
2. fuel - provide with fuel; "Oil fires the furnace"
Synonyms: fire
3. fuel - take in fuel, as of a ship; "The tanker fueled in Bahrain"
4. fuel - stimulate; "fuel the debate on creationism"


Fuel is material with potential energy which can be transferred into kinetic energy, or as heat or work. In most cases this is just something that will burn.
There are many different types of fuel. Solid fuels include coal, wood and peat. All these types of fuel are combustable, they create fire and heat. Coal was burnt by steam trains to heat water to provide power. Peat and wood are mainly used for domestic and industrial heating, though peat has been used for power generation, and wood-burning steam locomotives were common in times past.

Non-solid fuels include oil and gas (both fuel types have various varieties). The former is widely used in the internal combustion engine while both are used in power generation. However a fuel is not necessarily combustible. For example, in a nuclear reaction a fuel will undergo fission. This still provides a useful source of energy but not via combustion. Also, in stars (and our sun), hydrogen is the fuel for the nuclear fusion.

In the bodies of most animals, the fuel sources are carbohydrate, fat, protein, which supplies the energy for muscles.


Fuel valuesMain article: Fuel value.
The fuel value is the quantity of potential energy in a food or other substance.

Synonyms: optimisation


Optimization is a general term for extremum searching (maximizing or minimizing) of particular properties.

In mathematics, it is usually the value of a particular function. Optimization is also termed Operations research when applied to practical economic problems. See optimization (mathematics).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In computer science, optimization is the process of improving a system in certain ways such as execution speed, memory requirements and bandwidth. Despite its name, optimization does not necessarily mean finding the optimum solution to a problem. Often this is not possible, and heuristic algorithms must be used instead.
