This report describes research conducted to develop measurement techniques for particulate emissions from aircraft gas turbine engines. The ultimate goal was to establish optimum sampling procedures, parameters, devices, and instruments to use for measuring the mass of particulates emitted from gas turbines operating in the open atmosphere. On the basis of a series of tests with a turboprop engine and limited tests with turbofan engines, researchers concluded that: (1) accurate gravimetric measurements of engine particulate emissions can be made; (2) smoke number (reflectance) measurements do not correlate with gravimetric measurements of engine particulate emissions; and (3) as with smoke number measurements, it is difficult to relate gravimetric measurements of engine particulate emissions to ambient air quality standards.
