A hybrid numerical model has been developed to simulate contaminant dispersion within an aircraft interior. A two-equation Low-Reynolds-Number adaptive FEM model is used for simulating turbulent flow within an aircraft. Coupled with Lagrangian Particle Transport Technique, contaminant dispersion within aircraft interiors can be accurately simulated. Mesh independent studies can be avoided when using the adaptive technology, an L2 norm error estimator is used to guide the adaptation procedure. By using the adaptive algorithm, mesh independent studies can be avoided.
