Exhaust gases emitted by diesel engines are characterized by offensive odors, which can be rated numerically by human judges. Correlation of such ratings with the chemical composition of diesel exhaust will aid in (1) establishing Federal standards for diesel exhaust emissions and (2) developing methods of diesel odor control. Part 1 presents instructions for the training of judges to rate the odors in terms of intensity and quality standards provided to them for reference. Part 2 describes the physical arrangement of an exhaust dilution and panel exposure system. It describes the performance of odor evaluation tests, design of test programs, and statistical analysis of test data. Appendices describe (A) the theoretical basis for air purification requirements in test chambers, (B) composition and makeup of diesel odor standards, and (C) mathematical derivations of the statistical procedures.
