Abstract

Air pollution problems, that include in their scope the solution of equations involving the chemical transformation of primary and secondary pollutants, is one of the topics that require the use of high performance computing. The problem considered in this work implies the solution of a transport problem plus the chemical kinetic problem associated with the species transported from a single industrial source. A Lagrangian approach was used for the plume transport; so, the set of chemical equations must be solved separately to the transport subsystem. The overall problem requires the use of vector supercomputers to find good approximations in reasonable time. Diverse chemical mechanisms i
