A Reactive Plume Model for the NO-N02 Transformation Close to the Stack Emission
A reactive plume model has been developed in order to calculate NO-N02 transformation in the vicinity of the source. The model has been tailored to explicitly allow for the interaction of chemical reactions and the physical mixing process. The mixing process depends in both the macro-scale and micro-scale properties of the plume. Both effect have been taken into account and will be discussed. The model is based on the resolution of nine ordinary differential equations for the reactive species NO-N02-03 and their cross products integrated over the width of the plume. The results are compared to experimental data and those obtained by the resolution of the complete Eulerian transport equations. It is shown the reactive plume model gives accurate results.
