In the regulatory practice of most European countries when studying the air pollution by heavy particles, released by industrial sources, it is normally assumed that the particles have a constant gravity deposition velocity [1, 2]. Usually the particles are divided by their size in four intervals and a mean sedimentation velocity is determined for each interval. The present work aims at calculating the pollution concentration, accounting for the polydispersive nature of the admixture.
