The Spread of Pollutants Emitted from Long and Large Obstacles in Atmosphere
The paper presents a computational model for the prediction of the pollutant spread from a source close to a relatively large object in the atmosphere. The mathematical model comprises a quasi three-dimensional steady flow model, and a fully threedimensional, unsteady concentration model which employs the results of the computed flow field.
The computational model is applied to predict the spread of pollutants for a typical illustration case, and the results are displayed and demonstrated to be plausible and informative
