With the subject of engine emissions expected to be at the forefront of environmental regulations and consumers’ concerns for years to come, understanding the fundamental principles of how those emissions occur, and how they can be properly measured, is vitally important. SAE International’s Engine Emissions Measurement Handbook addresses the main aspects of this subject. Developed and co-authored by HORIBA, Engine Emissions Measurement Handbook is targeted at the technical user. It is suitable for those involved in engine development and testing, and environmental researchers focused on better ways to minimize emissions pollution. Using easy-to-understand language, authors Hiroshi Nakamura and Masayuki Adachi cover, among others, the following topics: measurement of gaseous emissions; measurement of particulate emission; evaporative emissions measurement; principles of exhaust gas analyzers; vehicle emissions testing equipment; emissions measurement applications; and emissions regulations around the world.
