Description: A major DoD source of particulate matter (PM) emissions is the operation of gas turbine engines powering military aircraft. PM emissions have become a growing concern because these small particles can have significant impact on human health and the environment. This session will provide overviews of the human health and environmental impacts of aircraft particulates and the means by which they are being measured. A short history of aircraft PM emissions was presented along with the status of characterizing these emissions. SERDP is also supporting research to establish a fundamental science and technology base that can be used to develop and evaluate PM models for designing future low emissions gas turbine combustors. The results from these studies were highlighted along with projections of the impact of particulate emissions from future gas turbine engines.
