South Africa is currently the seventh largest coal-producing country in the world, and annually roughly 70 million tons of coal (for export) are transported across the country by means of heavy haul train operations. Coal is used worldwide in a number of different applications, and each application demands a coal sample with very specific chemical, geological and physical properties. Chemical and geological properties of coal have been studied intensively over the last few decades, with physical properties - although important - rarely being included in these studies.
