Procedure for the Continuous Sampling and Measurement of Non-Volatile Particle Emissions from Aircraft Turbine Engines
This SAE Aerospace Information Report (AIR) describes procedures, required continuous sampling conditions, and instrumentation for the measurement of non-volatile particle number and mass concentrations from the exhaust of aircraft gas turbine engines. Procedures are included to calculate sampling loss performance. This AIR is not intended for in-flight testing, nor does it apply to engine operating in the afterburning mode. This standard is sold as a collection of related documents. In addition to the PDF of AIR6241 itself, the collection includes 3 Excel files that can be used to calculate measurements and performance, 7 PDFs of specific standard operating procedures, and a Word file describing VPR validation.
