Abstract

An improved inverse method was presented recently for the estimation of the location and the rate of an unknown point stationary source of passive atmospheric pollutant in a complex urban geometry. The inverse method was incorporated in the well-established and updated version of the ADREA-HF Computational Fluid Dynamics code. The key improvement of the proposed inverse method implementation lies in a two-step segregated approach combining a correlation and cost functions. At first only the source coordinates are analyzed using a correlation function of measured and calculated concentrations. In the second step the source rate is identified by minimizing a quadratic cost function. The validation of the new algorithm is performed by simulating the MUST wind tunnel experiment. Overall, we observed significant improvement, compared to previous implementations, on reconstructing the source information (location and rate).
