This paper presents a calculation technique and related computer program to yield mass emission rates from measured exhaust gas composition and fuel flow rate or fuel plus air flow rate (if air flow rate is measured). The sensitivity of the computed emission rates to (1) the method of calculation and (2) experimental measurement errors is investigated. It is recommended that published emission rates be the average of the rates computed by several different methods, as discussed in this paper, to minimize the effect of experimental variations in measurement. This, plus use of the computer program presented, would standardize the assumptions used in computing emissions and minimize differences in reported emission rates from different laboratories.
