# 40 CFR 86.344-79 - Humidity calculations.

There are 4 Updates appearing in the Federal Register for 40 CFR 86. Select the tab below to view, or View eCFR (GPOAccess)
§ 86.344-79 Humidity calculations.
(a) The following abbreviations (and units) are used in this section:
BARO = barometric pressure (Pa)
H = specific humidity, (gm H2O/gm of dry air)
K = 0.6220 gm H2O/gm dry air
M air = Molecular weight of air = 28.9645
M H2O = Molecular weight of water = 18.01534
P DB = Saturation vapor pressure of water at the dry bulb temperature (Pa)
P DP = saturation vapor pressure of water at the dewpoint temperature (Pa)
P v = partial pressure of water vapor (Pa)
P WB = saturation vapor pressure of water at the wet bulb temperature (pa)
T DB = Dry bulb temperature (°K)
T WB = Wet bulb temperature (°K)
Y = Water-vapor volume concentration
(b) The specific humidity on a dry basis of the intake air (H) is defined by equation (1).
(c) The partial pressure of water vapor may be determined in two manners:
(1) A dew point device may be used. In that case:
P v=P DP
(2) A wet-bulb, dry-bulb method may be used. In that case “Ferrels equation” (eq. (2)) is used.
(d)
(1) The saturation vapor pressure (P WB) of water at the wet-bulb temperature is defined by equation (3) (Ref. Wexler and Greenspan, equation (23), National Bureau of Standards).
where:
P WB is in Pascals (Pa)
T WB = Web-bulb temperature (°K)
B = − 12.150799
F 0 = − 8.49922(10)3
F 1 = − 7.4231865(10)3
F 2 = 96.1635147
F 3 = 2.4917646(10) −2
F 4 = − 1.3160119(10) −5
F 5 = − 1.1460454(10) −8
F 6 = 2.1701289(10) −11
F 7 = − 3.610258(10) −15
F 8 = 3.8504519(10) −18
F 9 = − 1.4317(10) −21
(2) The table in Figure D79-5 may be used in lieu of equation (3).
(e) The saturated vapor pressure of water at the dry-bulb temperature (P DB) is found (if required) by using dry-bulb absolute temperature (°K) in equation (3).
(f) The percent of relative humidity (RH) (if required) is defined by equation (4).
(g) The water-vapor volume concentration on a dry basis of the engine intake air (Y) is defined by equation (5).
