Boundary Layer Model for Air Pollutant Concentrations Due to Highway Traffic
Ragland, Kenneth W.; Peirce, J. Jeffrey
Journal of the Air Pollution Control Association, 25, 1, 48-51, Jan 75
A numerical solution of the three-dimensional steady-state diffusion equation for a finite width line source is presented. The wind speed and eddy diffusivity as a function of height above the roadway are obtained. Normalized ground level and elevated concentrations near a highway are obtained for winds perpendicular, parallel, and at 45 degrees. (Author/BT)
