1.1.3 The particulate emissions are calculated in the following way. The
generalequations in this paragraph apply to both full-flow- dilution and
partial-flow dilutionsystems:

1.1.3.1 The particulate mass flow rate (gm/hr) is calculated as follows :

PTmass =
M SAM * 1000

or:

Pf * V EDF
PTmass =

1.1.3.2 GEDF, V"EDF, MSAM and VSAM over the test cycle are determined by
summation of the average values of the individual modes :

MSAM= ΣM SAM,i

MoRTH / CMVR / TAP-115/116 (Issue 4)  Page 432

Or:

The value of the effective weighting factors must be within + 0.003 of the
weighting factors listed in paragraph 1.1.2.7.

1.1.3.4 The final reported test results of the particulate emission are derived

1.1.3.2.

1.1.3.4.2 When using single –dilution system ,MSAM is the mass through the
sampling filters(GF 1 in Chapter 5,system 2).

1.1.3.4.3 When using a double dilution system, MSAM is the mass through the
sampling filters(GF 1 in Chapter 5, system 2) minus the mass of the
secondary dilution air(GF 2 in Chapter 5,system 2)

1.1.4 The final reported test results of the particulate emission shall be derive

be used ,different calculation methods for GEDF or V"EDF apply.All
calculations are based upon the average values of the individual modes
during the sampling period.
