Kinsey, J. Laboratory validation of four black carbon measurement methods for the determination of non-volatile particulate matter (PM) mass emissions . . . SAE E-31 Committee Annual Meeting, San Diego, CA, June 18 - 22, 2012.

Impact/Purpose:

The purpose of this study is to evaluate four different methods for the determination of the black carbon emissions from commercial aircraft engines. This is the first comprehensive investigation of this type to be conducted.

Description:

A laboratory-scale experimental program was designed to standardize each of four black carbon measurement methods, provide appropriate quality assurance/control procedures for these techniques, and compare measurements made by these methods to a NIST traceable standard (filter gravimetric). This presentation provides a status report and preliminary results from this program.
