CAL3QHC is a microcomputer based model to predict carbon monoxide (CO) or other inert pollutant concentrations from motor vehicles at roadway intersections. The model includes the CALINE-3 line source dispersion model and a traffic algorithm for estimating vehicular queue lengths at signalized intersections. Roadway air dispersion modeling is the study of air pollutant transport from a roadway or other linear emitter. Computer models are required to conduct this analysis, because of the complex variables involved, including vehicle emissions, vehicle speed, meteorology, and terrain geometry.

The essential problem of the prediction model is the question of which of the original variables are the most important for predicting IAQ.

ROADWAY is a numerical model for predicting air pollution levels near highways. It solves a conservation of species equation via finite-difference approximations.

Temperature at two heights and wind velocity upwind of the highway are required inputs; surface layer similarity theory is used to produce wind and turbulence profiles.

Mathematical models which are used to predict or evaluate air pollutant concentration near roadways are either Gaussian models, i.e., GFLSM [1], CALINE 4 [2], or numerical ones (ROADWAY-2 [3]) or Author: K. Shankar Rao. Eskridge, R. and Catalano, J.

It is based on the Gaussian. The HIWAY model uses a steady state Gaussian equation to predict air pollution concentrations at receptor locations adjacent to a highway in relatively flat terrain.

The concentration from a line source is given by Q f C=- fd\, u Jo where Q is the emission rate per unit length, u is the wind speed, D is the length of the line source and/is the point source. Most of these models, which ranged from simple line-source Gaussian plume models to elaborate numerical models in two and three dimensions, did not explicitly account for traffic-generated turbulence, though its importance for initial dispersion of pollutants near highways was recognized and documented in the literature (Rao et al., ; Chock, ; Dabberdt et al., ).

The line-source Gaussian plume models. air quality prediction model for highways, AIRPOL Version 2, July AIRI•OL has been developed by modifying the basic Gaussian approach to gaseous dispersion. The resultant model is smooth and continuous throughout its entire range, which adds mathematical credence to its applic ability.

In this paper, we will predict one-step (next 30mins) ahead three pollutants, namely, NO 2, PM 10, and O 3 concentrations by including some spatial and temporal factors.

Important variables which are also included are six air pollutants (NO 2, NO. The air pollution level is influenced by the condition of the previous day to some extent. If the air pollution level of the previous day is high, the pollutants may stay and affect the following day.

Motor vehicles are a significant source of urban air pollution. Adverse effects on health due to proximity to roads were observed after adjusting for socioeconomic status and after adjusting for noise.

Elevated health risks associated with living in close proximity to roads is unlikely to be explained by PM mass since this is only slightly elevated near roads.
