Fundamentals of Stack Gas Dispersion
This is the new fourth edition of the book on dispersion modeling of continuous, buoyant air pollution plumes which takes nothing for granted. Every equation is completely derived step-by-step without any complicated or advanced mathematics. Every constraint and assumption is fully explained. The subjects covered in the book include atmospheric turbulence and stability classes, buoyant plume rise, Gaussian dispersion calculations and modeling, time-averaged concentrations, wind velocity profiles, fumigations, trapped plumes, flare stack plumes and much more ... with a great many example calculations. The book has been purchased in 84 countries and is currently available in 233 libraries worldwide. It has been referenced or cited as an educational resource more than 880 times in the technical literature and on the Internet, including 34 regulatory publications of state or national governmental agencies worldwide. It has also been used as recommended reading or a textbook in 61 university courses. A complete list of the 880 citations is available online at at http://www.air-dispersion.com/interest.html#References It is also listed in the following online sources: OpenLibrary , LibraryThing , GoodReads , Citeulike , Wageningen University Library and Internet Archive .
