A model of plume rise from multiple sources of unlike heights and emission parameters, developed by us, has been applied to a series of data regarding the wet plumes of the cooling towers of Amos Power Plant (Ohio, USA). A modification of the buoyancy parameter, in order to take into account the effects of latent heats on the buoyancy flux, has been made. This was done in two ways: by using virtual or equivalent temperatures. The comparison between data and model shows good agreement, giving a better fitting with the buoyancy calculated by means of equivalent temperatures.

Abstract

A model of plume rise from multiple sources of unlike heights and emission parameters, developed by us, has been applied to a series of data regarding the wet plumes of the cooling towers of Amos Power Plant (Ohio, USA). A modification of the buoyancy parameter, in order to take into account the effects of latent heats on the buoyancy flux, has been made. This was done in two ways: by using virtual or equivalent temperatures. The comparison between data and model shows good agreement, giving a better fitting with the buoyancy calculated by means of equivalent temperatures.
