Abstract

Modeling toxic releases using analytical, finite element and boundary element methods with a visual database D.W. Pepper," J.A. Marino* "Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of & Applied Graphic Solutions Corp., Moorpark, California, USA ABSTRACT A set of environmental dispersion models based on analytical, finite element, and boundary element methods are used with a visual database shell to assess environmental transport of toxic material. The visual shell consists of an object oriented, relational database which is used for inventory control and monitoring of materials. Visual images of detailed sites, building locations, floor plans, and even 3-D views within a room are available to the user. In the event of a release to the environment, the dispersion models are used to calculate atmospheric transport, groundwater transport, and/or transport within a building interior. The software runs on 386/486 PCs and workstations. INTRODUCTION The recognition and rea
