Abstract:

Assessment of the environmental impact of aircraft operations is required by Air Force regulations. This program was undertaken to quantify gaseous and particulate emissions associated with two Air Force turbine engines F101 and F110. The emissions tests were carried out using a test cell at Tinker AFB, Oklahoma City, OK. All tests employed JP-4 as the fuel, and fuel samples were characterized by standard tests and analyzed for composition. Emissions were measured at five power settings for each engine. Detailed organic composition, CO, CO2, NO, NOx, smoke emissions, particle concentration, and particle size distribution were measured. A multiport sampling rake was used to sample the exhaust, and heated Teflon tubing was used to transfer exhaust to the monitoring instrumentation. Measured and calculated fuelair ratios were compared to assure representative sampling of the exhaust.
