Abstract:

In order to ascertain what methods of effluent treatment would be applicable to jet engine test cells, a study was undertaken to assess current and projected exhaust gas treatment technology and to establish that technology which results in the most effective cleanup per dollar. Emission factor data for the most prevalent Air Force engines were gathered to determine what levels of pollutants were to be dealt with. A theoretical model of a test cell augmentor tube with liquid injection was developed to aid in estimating total system flow rates as a function of engine operating parameters. The Air Force test cell emission reduction program can be characterized as having three goals which are discussed. The first or immediate goal is one of reducing visible emissions. The second or near-term goal involves meeting particulate mass criteria such as might be promulgated by the Environmental Protection Agency. The third or future goal would be concerned with meeting the mass emission regulations for NOx. Modified author abstract
