Abstract The focus of work performed under Grant R01 OH03052 was development of new computational models appropriate for predicting contaminant transport in the complex turbulent flows encountered in industrial ventilation applications, with an emphasis on contaminants comprised of dense particulates. The newly developed models are based on large eddy simulation (LES), a more accurate technique for predicting turbulent transport than methods currently used in engineering practice. The goal of this work was to extend LES to prediction of turbulent flows transporting small particles which do not follow the flow and to validate the model against experimental measurements from well-defined test problems.
