Abstract:

Three months of flow and turbulence data obtained at the Vandenberg AFB hydrogen flare stack site has been used to simulate the bahavior of the plume. Time series analyses have been used to determine air parcel trajectories. Turbulence in the area is sufficient to carry air parcels to ground level. The spatial persistence of the trajectory end and function of time spent near the average position have been determined as functions of conditions. The results have been prepared and methodologies outlined to enable heat deposition calculation to be performed. Keywords Turbulence Complex terrain Plume motion.
