An account is presented of a two-part study concerned with the reduction of emissions from the group of vehicles populating the 6,000-14,000 pound GVW range. In the technical evaluation study, state-of-the-art control technology is used to synthesize control system strategies and to estimate their control effectiveness when applied to this class of vehicles. The economic analysis study develops the relationships between the different control strategies and the costs associated with their implementation. A description is given of a computer program developed to assess the impact on emissions and to evaluate implementation costs of the several control strategies. Numerical results are presented.
