Turbulent jets and plumes - a Lagrangian approach

Wisdom of turbulent blending by means of plumes and jets, resembling these encountered in smokestack emissions, volcanic eruptions, and sewage discharges, is critical for controlling environmental influence and for assessing probability.

Dyes and Pigments

During this publication the authors return to fundamentals to explain the structural alterations among dyes and pigments, their mechanisms of motion, homes and purposes. They set the scene by means of explaining the explanations at the back of those modifications and exhibit how dyes are predominately natural compounds that dissolve or react with substrates, while pigments are (predominantly) finely flooring inorganic components which are insoluble and consequently have a distinct mode of coloring.

Oxides of nitrogen Atmospheric Pollution 3. 1. Introduction There is an important difference between the behaviour of fuel nitrogen in combustion and that of sulphur. When a fuel is burnt, its sulphur is converted quantitatively to sulphur dioxide. Its nitrogen by contrast is converted to elemental nitrogen N2 in what, again, is likely to be approaching a quantitative yield. The small proportion that does not become elemental nitrogen becomes nitric oxide NO which is readily oxidised in the atmosphere of nitrogen dioxide NO2.

7. 1 Introductory comments Factors in the formation of ozone are NOx and VOC. The former has a chapter of its own in this volume and the latter is covered in the first part of this chapter. A discussion of ozone itself therefore logically follows. 3 gives measured amounts of ozone at various places. Again, values should be taken as being representative. 3 Levels of ozone. m.
