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.
