Abstract

This study is related to the general simulation of gas and particles dispersion in and around a manufactory. The physical and the mathematical models used are described ; the results of both experiments are commented and qualitatively compared to the field data. Some technical solutions to tentatively reduce the pollution level due to this type of industry are also analysed.
