Abstract:

This is the first volume of an eight-volume interim report which documents the test data obtained in a study of turbine emission degradation. This volume contains an introduction to the program, a description of the test schedule, equipment, procedures, and data processing techniques, as well as a discussion of the test data itself. A total of 519 repetitious emission tests were conducted over a period of 22 months on units of the following engine types JT8D-9, JT8D-7, JT3D-7, JT3D-3B, JT9D-3A, RB211-22B, and CF700-2D. Emissions of CO2, CO, HC, NO, NOx, and smoke were monitored, in addition to various engine operating parameters, over an eight-mode test cycle ranging from cold idle to take-off and back to hot idle.
