A computer model for analyzing the airflow and particle transport and deposition around the Center of Excellence (CoE) Building in Syracuse was developed. The k-ε and the k-ω turbulence models in addition to the Reynolds stress transport model was used in the analysis. The airflow fields for the wind tunnel scale model of the building were simulated for different wind speeds and various directions including north to south and west to east. The computer pressure and velocity fields were compared with the corresponding experimental data obtained by Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) and good agreement was found. Applications of the computational model for predicting particulate pollutant dispersion and deposition near the CoE building were discussed.
