Abstract

The effects of continuous and intermittent sources of air pollution in a sulphuric acid plant are experimentally investigated. The deviation between time-average concentrations and the prediction of various stack dispersion formulae depends on the down-wind distance and the range of wind velocity. Correction coefficients are suggested for adopting such equations for the estimation of long term pollution.
