RAM - Version 1.0 - Multiple Source Air Quality Modeler and Analyzer
'RAM 1.0 Software for Gaussian-Plume Multiple Source Air Quality Simulation', American Journal of Applied Sciences 2 (2): 533-538, 2005.
●RAM1.0 consists of RAM model, corresponding algorithm, GUI, map support tool and help system.
●RAM 1.0 calculates short-term (for a period from one hour to one year) pollutant concentrations and/or concentration fields from multiple point and/or area sources at a user-specified region in level or gently rolling terrain.
●In one calculation, the software allows the allocation of up to 250 point-sources and 100 area-sources.
●The pollutants considered by the software are relatively non-reactive, such as sulfur dioxide (SO2) and suspended particulates.
●Plume rise is calculated following the methods of Briggs and both boundary rice and momentum rise are included.
●For the calculation of concentration field, the software can set up a maximum of 9000 grid nodes.
●RAM 1.0 can generate various fine 2-D and 3-D graphics for input data and calculated output results.
●The local analysis in 2-D graphics is provided for calculating and displaying the values of maximum, minimum and mean concentrations in any interesting rectangle.
