Calculation of the dispersion of contaminants
Analysis of the dispersion of contaminants - regardless of whether they have been released by military weapons or industrial accidents - is one of the most important requirements for effective countermeasures. Modern dispersion models not only take into account the type of contaminant source, but also the current environmental conditions and the topography, which means they can not only realistically forecast the atmospheric transport but also the concentration of the contaminants in the ground.
These results are used for early warning of the affected population in the event of a hazardous incident. Dispersion models are therefore an important tool for timely hazardous incident management. Simulation supports exercises to practice response in such hazardous incident scenarios and in these cases is the only possible method - reliable, cost-effectively and safely, without risks.
The simulation system developed within the scope of studies is called HEAT.
