Abstract:

The gaseous exhaust emissions from 14 military gas turbine engines were measured at various power levels from idle to full power including afterburning. SAE smoke number was determined. All measurements were made using the Air Force Mobile Emissions Laboratory which is a self-contained state-of-the-art gas turbine emissions test laboratory. Emission rates of hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen were calculated. The emission rate of sulfur oxides was estimated from fuel analyses. The body of data was analyzed to show relationships among the data. These studies included the effect of power setting on emission index and smoke number, variation of gas concentrations across the exhaust plume and the degree of uncertainty introduced by abbreviated sampling methods. A summary table of Best Estimate emission factors for all the engines tested is provided. Author
