The variation in emissions over the exhaust area of a General Electric CF6-50 model engine was investigated in order to determine the requirements for a representative sample. The emission measurements were made in a systematic pattern of 120 sample points using a traversing probe system. These data were used to develop detailed emission profiles at three power levels. At idle power, variations over the exhaust area are attributed to the particular fueling pattern used in current CF6-50 model engines. At higher power levels, where uniform fueling is employed, emission levels are more uniform and are characterized by a slightly peaked radial profile. Average values from the 120-point traverse were comapred with selected 12-point averages in the EPA prescribed cruciform pattern. Generally good agreement between the two averages was obtained.
