Abstract:

The mathematical modeling techniques used to predict atmospheric dispersion of heavier-than-air gases discussed in Volume 1 are briefly summarized these techniques are incorporated in an interactive computer model DEGADIS. Details of DEGADIS implementation are briefly discussed. The necessary input information to simulate a heavier-than-air gas release with DEGADIS is summarized. Example simulations of a steady state and transient release are included. A list of DEGADIS self-diagnostics with suggested actions are included. A listing of DEGADIS is included along with a partial list of program variables. Guidelines for installation of DEGADIS are presented.
