The actual reported fuel flow has been divided by two since the original data source represents the sum from two engines. the effects of both ambient temperature and fuel flow rate. The contours reflect that some of the dependence on fuel flow has been softened, relative to the dependence in Figure V-2. V.2Example Application of the Model Figure V-6.

The steps associated with the fuel flow conversion only are outlined here for a single operation for an A320 aircraft being operated at Zurich Airport. The ambient tempera- Figure V-1.

HC ( Fuel Flow ) s = 1 + -52 [ Fuel Flow - FF7% ] In Figure V-4, shortly after engine start a sub-7% fuel flow HC ( FF7% ) kg is established. Periodically, the fuel flow actually increased above the 7% thrust, presumably to achieve "breakaway" thrust-- In Figure V-6 the UHC emission rate is calculated for the the point where the aircraft begins to move. time-dependent fuel flow rate from the example operation.

This is a multiplicative very accurate for the breakaway accelerations, but this example factor to the 7% thrust emission index; however, the potential at least estimates this portion of the fuel flow only dependence. difference in fuel flow needs to be treated explicitly.
