Abstract : The report presents in detail the results of the environmental pollution studies of the A/F 32A-13, A/F 32A-14, and A/F 32T-2 jet engine and aircraft noise suppressors. Detailed descriptions of the sampling and measurement methods used during these studies as well as refined jet engine emissions factors, descriptions of exhaust plume formation, and discussions of downwind rainout of liquid droplets from the exhaust plume are presented. The noise data obtained are also presented but unlike the air pollution data will have little general application. However, the noise data will be of use to those bases anticipating or currently using the noise suppressors studied. The report also provides data to be used for determining the impact of engine testing on local air quality.
