The smog chamber facility of the University of North Carolina (UNC) was used to provide experimental data for the EPA and atmospheric model developers for testing and validating kinetic mechanisms of photochemical smog formation. In the study, 71 dual-experiments were performed using NOx and various hydrocarbons and hydrocarbon mixtures. Experiments were also conducted to better understand and characterize (1) the chamber when operated dynamically to simulate continuous emissions and dilution, and (2) the solar radiation inside the smog chamber. The chamber experiments described in the report have been added to the existing UNC database for model testing, bringing the total number of dual-experiments in the database to 417. The database is available on an ANSI formatted magnetic tape.
