The report, one of four volumes describing research performed under EPA's Fundamental Combustion Research (FCR) Applied to Pollution Formation Program, gives results of three studies related to measurement system evaluations. Section I documents an evaluation of the performance and potential measurement biases of chemiluminescent NOx analyzers. The study evaluates commercial instruments operating with low- and atmospheric-pressure reaction chambers. Section II documents an assessment of various techniques used to measure nitrogenous intermediates from staged combustion processes. The study focuses on an evaluation of specific ion electrodes for measurement of hydrogen cyanide and ammonia concentrations generated in staged combustion flames. Emphasis was on development of sampling techniques and evaluation of potential biases in specific ion electrode analysis. Section III documents an evaluation of three laser-based techniques (based on interferometry, holography, and laser diffraction) for measuring characteristics of sprays. Results are presented from application of these techniques for measurement of droplet size distribution produced by a commercial liquid spray nozzle.
