Description
The random fluctuations of concentration levels in a plume is studied using a wind tunnel simulation of dispersion in the neutrally stable atmospheric boundary layer. A fast response hot - film probe is developed and used to measure high frequency fluctuations of helium tracer concentration in the wind tunnel. A statistical intermittent log - normal concentration model is developed and successfully compared with measured peak - to - mean ratios and complete probability density functions of the concentration fluctuations; the model parameters are concentration mean, variance and intermittency. The highest peak concentrations are observed to occur about two thirds of the distance out to the point of maximum mean concentration.
