91.311 Test conditions.§ 91.311 Test conditions.
(a) General requirements. (1) Ambient temperature levels encountered by the test engine throughout the test sequence may not be less than 20 °C nor more than 30 °C.
(2) Calculate all volumes and volumetric flow rates at standard conditions for temperature and pressure. Use these conditions consistently throughout all calculations. Standard conditions for temperature and pressure are 25 °C and 101.3 kPa.
(b) Engine test conditions. Measure the absolute temperature (designated as T and expressed in Kelvin) of the engine air at the inlet to the engine and the dry atmospheric pressure (designated as ps and expressed in kPa. Determine the parameter f according to the following provisions:
(1) Naturally aspirated and mechanically supercharged engines:
(2) Turbocharged engine with or without cooling of inlet air:
(3) For a test to be recognized as valid, the parameter f must be between the limits as shown below:
