The Air Force Weapons Laboratory in cooperation with the Argonne National Laboratory has developed a computerized Air Quality Assessment Model AQAM which will be used to assess the impact of airbase activity on Ambient Air Quality within the airbase and in surrounding areas. The AQAM has the capability of precisely simulating the aerial and ground operating cycle of each active USAF aircraft. An important component of this operating cycle is the takeoff runway roll distance. The runway roll is associated with high engine power settings and correspondingly high pollution emissions. This report outlines the procedure for utilizing least-squares curve fitting techniques to develop equations to accurately define the runway roll distance for each USAF aircraft in given meteorological conditions.
