Recent Improvements in Near Real-Time Emissions Measurement and Analysis Capability At Aedc 961309
Real-time emissions measurement and analysis at AEDC are
performed by the Applied Technology Department. During fiscal year
1995, there was a major increase in the number of requirements for
emissions measurements in support of ground testing at AEDC. This
ambitious schedule required the best path through research, design,
and implementation of data acquisition and analysis procedures.
Therefore, the preparations for each test included improvements to
emissions measurement methodology. These improvements could then be
implemented on all subsequent tests so that overall testing
methodology was continuously improved, and the time between testing
and final data analysis was minimized.
The objectives of this paper are to identify accomplishments in
real-time emissions monitoring and improvements in emissions
measurement and analysis capability at AEDC.
