Abstract:

A TF30-P-412 augmented turbofan engine was tested at simulated altitudes and Mach numbers to determine the effects of these parameters altitude and Mach number on exhaust pollution emissions. Emission measurements were made over a range of engine power settings from idle to full augmentation at altitudes from sea level to 70,000 feet and a Mach number range of 0 to 1.8. There was no apparent effect on emission levels due to altitude or Mach number.
