In these environmental processes over a complex terrain, a mesh generator capable of adapting itself to the topographic characteristics is essential. The first stage of the model consists on the construction of an adaptive tetrahedral mesh of a rectangular region bounded in its lower part by the terrain and in its upper part by a horizontal plane. Once the mesh is constructed, an adaptive local refinement of tetrahedra is used in order to capture the plume rise. Wind measurements are used to compute an interpolated wind field, that is modified by using a mass-consistent model and perturbing its vertical component to introduce the plume rise effect...||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/16395||ISSN:||0360-5442||DOI:||10.1016/j.energy.2012.10.051||Source:||Energy[ISSN 0360-5442],v. 49, p. 47-60||Rights:||by-nc-nd|
