ABSTRACT
This paper presents the results of studies on pollution emissions from self-ignition engines. The studies were conducted on a Citroen Berlingo delivery van on a chassis test bed applying the ECE R 83 test with start-up of a warm engine. Pollutant emission intensity was registered in a continuous manner. The registered runs of pollutant emission intensity were subjected to digital processing. A correlation analysis was conducted subsequently. The Pearson, Spearman, Kendall, and Kruskal theories were applied in the study. The analysis demonstrated a clear correlation between the examined runs. The probability of non-rejection of the hypothesis regarding the lack of correlation was equal to zero with an accuracy of at least six places beyond the decimal point. An exception was the correlation test between carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide emission intensity processes for which the probability of non-rejection of the hypothesis regarding the lack of correlation amounted to a maximum of approximately 5%.
