Abstract

Numerical simulation modeling of air pollution: an overview Paolo Zannetti Failure Analysis Associates, Inc., 149 Commonwealth Drive, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA Abstract This article presents an overview of mathematical and numerical methods used to simulate air pollution phenomena. Each method is discussed without introducing its mathematical notation. Advantages, disadvantages and limits of applicability of each technique are addressed. 1. INTRODUCTION If air pollution is a "problem," mathematical modeling cannot claim to be the "solution" to this problem. Mathematical modeling, however, is an indispensable tool for several important air quality analyses. As a matter of fact, no strategy for emission reduction and control can be cost-effective without a previous serious application of mathematical modeling techniques. Mathematical models are the only practical tool that can answer our "what if* questions. Contrary to the common belief that environmental point mea
