Abstract

A mathematical model is developed for sedimentation acid precipitate formation within a region of atmosphere adjacent to a thermal electric power station. The effect of ambient temperature on condensation rate is analyzed numerically. Results of numerical studies show that a droplet in flight is heated to the air temperature in summertime. These studies illustrate that an increase in surface temperature leads to its evaporation during movement. Checking the results obtained is carried out by verifying the conservative nature of the difference scheme and solution of test problems.
