Time

8:30

Description: Input the time when the first run begins.

Email

gkeilholz@aeromet.org

Description: Input your email address in the event we must contact you regarding your test form or certificate. This email address will be used as an identifier if you lose your certificate and need a replacement.

Sky Conditions

25%

Description: Input the % cloud cover when the test begins. 0% is completely clear and 100% is completely overcast.

Wind Speed

5

Description: Input the wind speed at the beginning of the test. Use 5 mph increments.

Wind Direction

N

Description: Input the direction from which the wind is blowing.

Run #

1

Description: Input the run number of the test. A run consists of both black and white smoke tests.

Corrective Lenses or Sunglasses?

No

Description: If you must wear corrective lenses or sunglasses during the test, you will only be certified to perform Method 9 observations with the same lenses. If you do not need to wear them, you should remove them for the test.

Distance to Stack

60'

Description: To ensure accuracy, you should stand at least three stack heights away from the smoke generator. The stack height is 15’. If you are 6 feet tall, you would stand at least 27’ (9x3) from the generator.

Direction to Stack

N

Description: Indicate the direction from you to the stack. You can use cardinal directions or degrees if you have a compass.

Background

Blue Sky

Description: Indicate the background you used while making your opacity readings. Remember, you should use a background with the highest possible contrast to the smoke color.

Recording Your Observations

Description: Write your opacity determination in the "Observer" column and fill-in the circle for the corresponding value. If the two values do not match, we will use the value written in the "Observer" column as your final answer. If you need to change your reading, put an "X" through the circle that you would like to discard.

data

discard reading

If you must change your answer, put an X through the reading to discard.

Trans Column

Description: Input the transmissometer reading in this column. The transmissometer reading is the actual opacity that will be announced by the instructor at the end of the test.

transmissometer

Dev Column

Description: Input the deviation between the Observer column and the Transmissometer column. Deviation is input as a 1, 2, 3 or F.
5% difference between your reading and transmissometer = 1
10% difference between your reading and transmissometer = 2
15% difference between your reading and transmissometer = 3
>15% difference between your reading and transmissometer = F (Fail)

deviation

failed reading

If you miss a reading by 20% or more, write a "F" in the deviation column. You must retake the entire test if you have a single "F" on the test.

Total

21

Description: Add the total deviation for the individual smoke color. The total deviation for each individual smoke color must be 37 or less and you must have no single deviation higher than 15% in order to pass the test. If you exceed 37 on either smoke color or have a single deviation of 20% or more, you must retake the entire test.

Distance to Stack

50'

Description: To ensure accuracy, you should stand at least three stack heights away from the smoke generator. The stack height is 15’. If you are 6 feet tall, you would stand at least 27’ (9x3) from the generator.

Direction to Stack

SW

Description: Indicate the direction from you to the stack. You can use cardinal directions or degrees if you have a compass.

Background

Green Trees

Description: Indicate the background you used while making your opacity readings. Remember, you should use a background with the highest possible contrast to the smoke color.

Recording Your Observations

Description: Write your opacity determination in the "Observer" column and fill-in the circle for the corresponding value. If the two values do not match, we will use the circle when grading the test. If you need to change your reading, put an "X" through the circle that you would like to discard.

failed reading

If you miss a reading by 20% or more, write a "F" in the deviation column. You must retake the entire test if you have a single "F" on the test.

Total

22

Description: Add the total deviation for the individual smoke color. The total deviation for each individual smoke color must be 37 or less and you must have no single deviation higher than 15% in order to pass the test.
