Computational modeling of pollutant transport, dispersion and deposition is described. Particular attention is given to transport and deposition of contaminant particles in atmospheric flows around buildings, in street canyons and near bridges. The Eulerian-Eulerian and Eulerian-Lagrangian models are outlined. Particular attention was given to the use of advanced anisotropic turbulence models and a Lagrangian particle trajectory analysis. The procedure for simulating the instantaneous turbulence fluctuating velocity vector with the aid of random field model sis described. Examples of dispersion and deposition of pollutants near buildings, in street canyons and near bridges are discussed. It is shown that the computer simulation can predict the features of the experimentally observed pollutant concentration data.

Even with simplified equations and high-speed supercomputers, only approximate solutions can be achieved in many cases. Ongoing research, however, may yield software that improves the accuracy and speed of complex simulation scenarios such as transonic or turbulent flows. CFD CFD Methods Consideration • Topography and complex geometry: choose of the co-ordinate The tests and modelings demonstrate the possibilities of CFD system and computer grid; techniques in solving a broad range of air pollution problems. The • Turbulence closure for air pollution modelling: modified k-ε model g for stable stratified ABL; CFD techniques are rather complex, but capable of handling • Boundary conditions for vertical profiles of velocity for stable- situations where due to complex geometry, thermal effects or flow stratified atmosphere; conditions other simpler methods fail. • Effects of the radiation and thermal budget of inclined surfaces to dispersion of pollutants; • Artificial sources of air dynamics and circulation ٥
