`` Large eddy simulation of the pollutant dispersion in urban street canyon''

Abstract: The prediction of the pollutant dispersion is of great significance in the air quality of urban area. The source of the pollution comes from the emission released by the motor vehicles at the street floor. The large eddy simulation is used to predict the unsteady flow as well as the dispersion of pollutants in the street canyon. The results show that the LES is acceptable for the environmental problem.
