A high pressure cannular combustor has been developed to simulate aircraft turbine engine emissions. In conjunction with this combustor, a continuous analytical and sampling system was assembled. This system is capable of complete on-the-spot analysis of CO2, O2, CO, H2O, unburned hydrocarbons, and NOx. The measured emission levels obtained from burning Jet A are in good agreement with those reported from operating aircraft turbine engines. Data showing the effect of equivalence ratio and pressure on the concentration of combustion products are presented.
