SAGE Model Analysis and its Application in Civil Aviation Engine Emission


Article Preview

Aero2k and SAGE model havebeen developed in the contemporary society when emissions attract extensive attention, especially on aviation emissions. In this paper, origin and functions of SAGE model are introduced simply, while its calculation model is analyzed in detail. Based on SAGE model, process analysis of calculating aviation emissions has been made and Calculation procedure has been designed, then software about calculation of aviation emissions has been developed according to the procedure. There is no much deviation between true values and results based on the software, which is a good proof of feasibility of the software.
