Abstract

This paper presents a plume rise model, called Ml, capable of dealing with complex atmospheric profiles -wind shear and thermal stratification- since it performs a numerical integration, along the plume trajectory, of a set of differential equations derived from the balance of mass, momentum and energy in the plume. The model deals with a mixture of four components -dry combustion gas, dry air, water vapor and liquid water- to allow for condensation and/or re-evaporation within the plume. Profile shapes of temperature and velocity of the pl
