The major objective of the program was the determination of the causes of variability in the measurement of aircraft turbine engine emissions. A state-of-the-art analysis system was designed and built according to the specifications of the contract. The analysis system was evaluated for reliability in the handling and accuracy in the measurement of emissions. Using the special analysis system, the variability in gas turbine engine emission measurements caused by the exhaust sample collection technique was studied using a Pratt and Whitney JT8D gas turbine engine. An exhaust gas mixing technique and a detailed exhaust gas cross section mapping technique were used for the verification of average exhaust emission concentrations. The variability in exhaust emission measurements produced by the direction of approach to a power setting and the effect of small variations in thrust and fuel flow on the measurement of mass emission rates are determined. All emission data collected are examined for the effect of ambient temperature and humidity.
