Correction of the Model for Assessing the Emission of Harmful Exhaust Emissions from the Engine of a Small Aircraft During the Flight

The assessment of emissions of harmful compounds contained in exhaust gases generated by aircraft engines refers to turbine engines with high thrust and high power. This evaluation is carried out according to the stationary test procedure in accordance with the LTO (Landing/Take-off cycle) test. Such procedures do not apply to small aircraft with piston engines. Therefore, a series of works and tests of the emission of harmful compounds contained in the exhaust gas of aircraft engines was carried out. Based on these measures, a model was developed to determine the emission of harmful compounds generated in the exhaust of piston engines during the flight of the aircraft. This model was carried out in two stages. The first stage consisted in defining the relationship between selected operational and ecological parameters of the aircraft in order to build the model. The proposed model has been verified in the studies, the results of which are presented in the article, Markowski J., Pielecha J., Jasinski R.: Model to assess the exhaust emissions from the engine of a small aircraft during flight. The conclusion of the work was to undertake research related to the assessment of the differences between the modeling results and the results of measurements of exhaust emissions during the flight of the aircraft. The analysis of causes and effects was carried out and the model correction was made on its basis. The final stage was the verification of the model during the aircraft’s re-flight. The work carried out allowed the development of a model that could be a proposal to develop a procedure for the assessment of pollutant emissions from small aircraft powered by piston engines. The results of the work and its method were carried out in the article.
