Petroleum products are usually grouped into three categories: light distillates (LPG, gasoline, naphtha), middle distillates (kerosene, diesel), heavy distillates and residuum (heavy fuel oil, lubricating oils, wax, asphalt). This classification is based on the way crude oil is distilled and separated into fractions (called distillates and residuum).
Liquid petroleum gas (LPG)
Gasoline (also known as petrol)
Kerosene and related jet aircraft fuels
Diesel fuel
Fuel oils
Lubricating oils
Paraffin wax
Asphalt and tar
Petroleum coke

Materials Characterization – such as diffraction with x-rays , electrons , or neutrons , and various forms of spectroscopy and chemical analysis such as Molecular spectroscopy , energy-dispersive x-ray spectroscopy (EDS), Surface analysis, thermal analysis etc., in order to understand and define the properties of materials.

Surface science/Catalysis – interactions and structures between solid-gas solid-liquid or solid-solid interfaces.

Ceramography – the study of the microstructures of high-temperature materials and refractories , including structural ceramics such as RCC , polycrystalline silicon carbide and transformation toughened ceramics.

Non-destructive testing - use of electromagnetic radiation ( x-rays) sound (ultrasonic) and inherent properties of materials to examine samples.

Utilizing a design to RS, produce to RS and a manage to RS philosophy provides the Engineer with a powerful, modern approach to design. Careful control of the residual stress inside a manufactured component is possible and easily achieved in today’s manufacturing environment.
