Abstract

A computer model has been developed to study thermal energy releases into the environment. A typical application of the model is the study of the behaviour of cooling-tower effluent under different weather and operating conditions. The model employs the full three-dimensional transport equations describing the conservation of mass, momentum and energy. The flow is treated as single-phase and the behaviour of any droplets present is calculated indirectly. The model takes into account such hydrometeorological phenomena as the effects of humidity, wind direction and speed, density variations and the presence and precipitation of droplets. Sample results from cooling tower applications are presented and discussed.
