  • Modelling dispersion of smoke from wildfires in a Mediterranean area

    We present a modelling system for the estimation of forest fire emissions ( prebolchem-fire ) and their inclusion in the atmospheric composition model BOLCHEM. Emission fluxes have been estimated following the methodology proposed by Seiler and Crutzen (1980) and using MODIS ‘burned area product’. Then they are modulated following the WRAP approach (WRAP, 2005). This approach is also used for ...

  • Numerical simulation of aerosols in an aircraft wake using a 3D LES solver and a detailed microphysical model

    The global impact of aviation on the atmosphere is generally determined using the total amount of gas and particulate matter emitted at the aircraft engine exit but generally ignore some of the physical transformations occurring at much smaller scales in the aircraft wake. In this work, we present an offline alternative method based on the use of a detailed plume aerosol model combined to fluid ...

  • CFD modelling for atmospheric pollutants/aerosols studies within the complex terrains of urban areas and industrial sites

    Computational fluid dynamic (CFD) modelling of pollution dispersion and chemical conversion to aerosol particles in the atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) has been studied. The investigation focused on the numerical modelling above complex orographic terrains of urban areas and industrial sites including the dispersion of toxic substances in the air as a result of accidents. A finite-rate model of ...

  • The Important Job of Oil Mist Collectors

    The majority of business owners whose manufacturing process requires machinery that uses coolants, lubricants, or oils know how vital it is to keep the spray or mist released, during the operation from collecting on walls, ceilings or floors as much as possible. Emissions that are uncollected, can lead to slippery surfaces and an unhealthy working environment, which is why an  ...

  • Engine detonation with bioethanol cavitation

    Bioethanol is an alcohol of an organic origin which receives from a sugar ferment reaction. In the process of ethanol formation, starch from grains of plants turns in simple sugar in reaction with enzymes. Natural sugar ferments with yeast and form a mix of alcohol, water and unfermented remains. Alcohol is separated from a mix in distillation capacities and additionally clears in rectifying ...

  • Variations in tropospheric submicron particle size distributions across the European continent 2008–2009

    Cluster~analysis of particle number size distributions from~background sites across Europe~is presented. This generated a total of nine clusters of particle size distributions which could be further combined into two main groups, namely: a south-to-north category (four clusters) and a west-to-east category (five clusters). The first group was identified as most frequently being detected inside ...
