Abstract:

Over the past 8 years, the Federal Aviation Administration FAA and the United States Air Force USAF have developed a number of user-friendly emissions and dispersion models for air quality assessment purposes. The major result of this effort is the Emissions and Dispersion Modeling System EDMS which was completed in 1985 and released to the general public. Since that time, major modifications have been made in the EDMS system to enhance its usability and incorporate an integral dispersion model into its code. The approach of this guide is to provide hands-on instructions on how to use the model. The mechanism for doing this is an example problem which is introduced early in this document. Four short sections precede the example problem instructions. The first shows how the EDMS evolved from the earlier FAA and USAF mainframe models. The next three sections describe the hardware and software required to run Section 5 provides the hands-on instructions to produce 1 an emissions inventory of all sources at an airportairbase and 2 an estimate of the concentrations produced by these sources at four airport locations. An inexperienced user should be able to process the example problem in less than 3 hours.
