Measuring Gaseous Emissions from an Aircraft.
SAE Progress in Technology 14:839-845
Aircraft turbine engines generate the same pollutants that are generated by automotive reciprocating engines, but problems of emission measurement differ greatly between the two types of engines. This is a discussion of experimental work done to define more clearly the character of the turbine emissions and to gain experience in sampling and measuring the emissions. An explicit objective was to evaluate the adequacy of available instrumentation and to reveal emission measurement problems unique to the turbine engine.
