  • Simulation of plume dispersion using different stack configurations and meteorological inputs

    The application of CALMET/CALPUFF modelling system is well known, and several validation tests were performed until now; however, most of them were based on experiments with a large compilation of surface and aloft meteorological measurements, not always available. Also, the use of an operational large smokestack as tracer source is not so usual. In this work, CALPUFF model is applied to ...

  • Using exergy to assess air pollution levels from a smokestack ? Part 1: methodology

    Exergy is proposed as a standard to assess the potential impacts of smokestack pollutants, such as those from coal boilers and power plants. A method is developed which analyses the exergy distribution of emissions such as SO2, NO and CO2, and heat. In a companion paper, spatial variations are illustrated for temperature, concentration, thermal exergy, chemical exergy and exergy of the ...
