The purpose of this paper was to investigate the relationship between ash composition and ash fusion characteristic temperatures for some Turkish lignites. The lignite samples used are from different areas in Turkey. Regression analysis was used to relate the ash composition to the ash fusion behaviour. The results suggest that the chemical composition has a significant effect on the ash fusion temperatures. To consider Fe2O3 as an acidic ash constituent makes the realtionships between the selected ash composition parameters and ash fusion temperatures clearer. © 1993, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
