Test Case 1

Test case 1 describes the qualitative simulation of a fire smoke. The accidental fire started at about 01:30 AM on October 15, 2012 and lasted the whole day with varying intensity. A volume source has been used to describe the fire. The emission rates are fictitious since actual data were not available, therefore the resulting concentrations do not represent the real situation. This test case will show you how to set up a source file with variable emission parameters.

  • LAPOST\go_lapost.bat - A batch file to run LAPOST (you must edit it to change the lapost.exe directory)
  • LAPOST\Out\ - Directory with the LAPOST output files

The batch files and the input files have been created for Windows users. Linux/UNIX/macOS users must edit the files as needed.

Test Case 2

Test case 2 describes a simulation over very complex terrain characterized by topography (valleys and mountains) and land-sea interface. The meteorological field for June 2, 2011 has been reconstructed with CALMET version 5.8.5. The continuous release from two fictitious buoyant point sources is simulated. The LAPMOD simulation of this test case takes about one minute on a modern PC, additional time is needed by the LAPOST processor. This test case will show you how few lines are needed to set up a source file with constant emission parameters.
