Air Dispersion Modeling: Foundations and Applications by Alex De Visscher

By Alex De Visscher

A unmarried connection with all elements of up to date air dispersion modeling

The perform of air dispersion modeling has replaced dramatically lately, largely as a result of new EPA rules. present with the EPA's forty CFR half fifty one, this e-book serves as an entire connection with either the technological know-how and modern perform of air dispersion modeling. during the publication, writer Alex De Visscher courses readers via advanced calculations, equation by means of equation, aiding them comprehend accurately how air dispersion versions paintings, together with such well known versions because the EPA's AERMOD and CALPUFF.

Air Dispersion Modeling starts off with a primer that allows readers to speedy seize easy ideas through constructing their very own air dispersion version. subsequent, the e-book deals every thing readers have to paintings with air dispersion types and thoroughly interpret their effects, including:

  • Full bankruptcy devoted to the meteorological foundation of air dispersion
  • Examples through the booklet illustrating how concept interprets into practice
  • Extensive discussions of Gaussian, Lagrangian, and Eulerian air dispersion modeling
  • Detailed descriptions of the AERMOD and CALPUFF version formulations

This publication additionally comprises entry to an internet site with Microsoft Excel and MATLAB documents that comprise examples of air dispersion version calculations. Readers can paintings with those examples to accomplish their very own calculations.

With its complete and updated insurance, Air Dispersion Modeling is usually recommended for environmental engineers and meteorologists who have to practice and overview environmental effect checks. The book's many examples and step by step directions additionally make it perfect as a textbook for college students within the fields of environmental engineering, meteorology, chemical engineering, and environmental sciences.
