The primary purpose of the study was to improve gas sampling techniques and to refine the calibration data for the application of the principles of gas chromatography to the analysis of combustion products from The University of Arizona Combustion Tunnel. Combustion products were analyzed and air-fuel ratios were calculated. The secondary purpose of the study was to extend the capability of the existing chromatography apparatus to the detection of selected hydrocarbons of the paraffin and olefin families. It was verified that propane C3H8 was selectively retained on the original equipment. Established principles and techniques were employed to construct and test chromatographic columns with selective retardation capabilities on the olefins. Pentene C5H10 and octene C8H16 were used for this phase of the study. Author
