Air Quality and Ventilation

    For accurately estimating pollution dispersion, Vipac applies both computational and physical modelling techniques in the measurement and prediction of pollutants such as dust, odour or gases. Design advice can maximise economic advantages.

    The use of detailed wind tunnel models allow investigation of highly localised flow fields. In the Boundary Layer Wind Tunnel momentum, atmospheric velocity, and aerodynamic interference effects are measured.

    On-site monitoring validates physical and numerical models. This helps to identify and confirm trouble spots. Strategies are implemented to minimise the impact of pollution and determine whether the applicable operational conditions are realised.

    Internal aerodynamics and thermodynamics affecting structures such as tunnels, systems, and built environments can be investigated, and monitored for fluid flows. Recommendations for ventilation, internal smoke control and pollutant capture from engine driven items and other pollutant sources ensure safe discharge to atmosphere.
