  1. 1.

    A numerical model was constructed for the aerodynamics of planar chambers and diffusion of impurities in the chamber atmosphere in a two-dimensional arrangement.

  2. 2.

    A method is proposed for determining the coefficients of turbulent diffusion in planar chambers, based on parallel physical and mathematical modeling.

  3. 3.

    Upon increasing the degree of horizontal flow constraint and the length of the chamber, a variation is observed in the ventilation pattern in planar chambers: from a recirculation pattern to direct flow-recirculation and direct flow. Reducing the velocity at the inlet to the chamber leads to a more rapid growth in eddy currents in the corners of the chamber.

  4. 4.

    With a direct-flow pattern of ventilation, a smooth reduction is observed in concentration at the outlet over time. With a recirculation pattern, additional maxima in concentration are observed, caused by the diffusion and transfer of impurities by eddy currents. Under conditions of direct-flow-recirculation ventilation, secondary maxima are very weakly expressed.
