  • ADMS-Urban - Air Pollution Modelling Software

    ADMS-Urban - Air Pollution Modelling Software

    ADMS-Urban is a comprehensive system for modelling air quality in large urban areas, cities and towns. It is the only practical urban air quality model which incorporates the latest scientific understanding, explicitly represents the full range of source types occurring in an urban area, takes account of complex urban morphology including street canyons, and provides output from street-scale to urban-scale and, with the regional model link, to even...

  • ADMS-Roads - Comprehensive Software for Modelling Road Traffic Pollution

    ADMS-Roads - Comprehensive Software for Modelling Road Traffic Pollution

    The ADMS-Roads pollution model is a comprehensive tool for investigating air pollution problems due to networks of roads that may be in combination with industrial sites, for instance small towns or rural road networks. ADMS-Roads combines many of the scientific capabilities of CERC's air quality management system ADMS-Urban with an easy-to-use interface. Model operation is similar to other ADMS models, making it a simple task for anyone familiar with...

  • ADMS-Airport - Air Pollution Modelling Software

    ADMS-Airport - Air Pollution Modelling Software

    ADMS-Airport is a comprehensive modelling tool for air quality management of airports. It has many of the features of the ADMS-Urban model and includes allowance for all relevant emission sources at airports and utilises algorithms designed specifically to model dispersion from aircraft engines.

  • ADMS-Screen - Advanced Screening Tool for Industrial Emissions

    ADMS-Screen - Advanced Screening Tool for Industrial Emissions

    ADMS-Screen is a screening model for air quality calculations. It models dispersion from a single stack to calculate ground-level concentrations, providing rapid assessments of stack height. Comparison with air quality strategy objectives and European Union air quality standards can be made. The model also has an option to include building effects. It can be used to indicate whether further modelling is required. ADMS-Screen uses the ADMS dispersion...

  • Regional-to-roadside Air Quality Modelling

    Nesting the ADMS local dispersion models in regional models allows predictions of pollutant concentrations that take into account both regional and local pollutant transport and chemistry effects.

  • Accidental Releases

  • GASTAR - Advanced Software for Modelling Dense Gas Dispersion

    GASTAR - Advanced Software for Modelling Dense Gas Dispersion

    GASTAR is a dense gas dispersion model developed by CERC ideally suited to modelling accident and emergency response scenarios or investigating site safety involving releases of flammable and/or toxic materials from a variety of industrial accidents such as cryogenic spills, catastrophic tank failure, pipe fractures and multi-phase jets.

  • ADMS-Puff - Advanced Software for Dispersion Modelling Dense & Passive Releases

    ADMS-Puff - Advanced Software for Dispersion Modelling Dense & Passive Releases

    ADMS-Puff uses a Lagrangian puff methodology to model the fate of dense and passive gas releases. ADMS-Puff can use temporally and spatially varying meteorological data from the WRF model, or simple surface data. ADMS-Puff can also account for the impact of complex terrain: hills and variable surface roughness. ADMS-Puff calculates snapshots of instantaneous air concentration along with a time integrated dose. These concentrations can be compared...

  • ADMS-Star - Advanced Software for Modelling Short-term Accidental Releases

    ADMS-Star - Advanced Software for Modelling Short-term Accidental Releases

    ADMS-STAR uses a Lagrangian puff methodology to model the fate of explosive or finite duration releases to atmosphere. ADMS-STAR can use temporally and spatially varying meteorological data from the WRF model, vertical profiles of meteorological data or simple surface data. ADMS-STAR can also account for the impact of complex terrain: hills, variable surface roughness; and marine effects. ADMS-STAR calculates instantaneous air concentration and...

  • LSMS - Advanced Software for Modelling Liquid Spills

    LSMS - Advanced Software for Modelling Liquid Spills

    LSMS (Liquid Spill Modelling System) is a tool for calculating the spreading and vaporisation of a liquid pool. Liquids such as liquefied natural gas (LNG), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and others are routinely stored at low temperatures and on their release to the atmosphere they boil or evaporate depending on their temperature relative to the ambient air. Such liquids flow across the ground or other substrate surrounding the containing vessel,...

  • Emissions Management

  • Wind Energy and Airflow

  • FLOWSTAR-Energy - High Resolution Air Flow Monitoring for Wind Farm Assessments

    FLOWSTAR-Energy - High Resolution Air Flow Monitoring for Wind Farm Assessments

    FLOWSTAR-Energy is a practical, high resolution model that simulates air flow and turbulence over flat or complex terrain, including the effects of stratification, variable surface roughness and wind turbines in operation. FLOWSTAR-Energy is an extended version of the FLOWSTAR model of flow over complex terrain; FLOWSTAR-Energy provides the flow field and turbulence output familiar to users of FLOWSTAR and in addition provides a range of essential...

  • Managing Model Runs

  • Run Manager - Advanced Software for Organising Model Execution

    Run Manager - Advanced Software for Organising Model Execution

    Run Manager is a tool to help users manage their model runs and make the most of their CERC licence(s). It gives greater flexibility by sharing all licensed PCs across the local area network. Runs can be defined by users on their own unlicensed PCs, submitted through Run Manager to be executed at the first opportunity and the results returned to the users on completion.

  • Air Quality Forecasting

  • ADMS-Forecast - Air Quality Forecasting System

    ADMS-Forecast - Air Quality Forecasting System

    ADMS-Forecast provides very high resolution air quality forecasts on the world-wide web. The forecasting system combines local data on traffic patterns, weather forecasts and regional forecasts of atmospheric composition. These data are input to the ADMS-Urban pollution dispersion modelling system, which gives concentrations at a high degree of spatial resolution across a city.
