RSICC CODE PACKAGE CCC-706
1. NAME AND TITLE
MESYST: Code System to Simulate 3D Tracer Dispersion in Atmosphere.
Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers, Paris, France through the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency Data Bank, Issy-Les Molineaux, France.
3. CODING LANGUAGE AND COMPUTER
Fortran 77; Cray, MEIKO (C00706MNYWS00).
4. NATURE OF THE PROBLEM SOLVED
MESYST can simulate 3D tracer dispersion in the atmosphere. Three programs are part of this system: CRE_TOPO prepares the terrain data for MESYST. NOABL calculates three-dimensional free divergence windfields over complex terrain. PAS computes tracer concentrations and depositions on a given domain.
The purpose of this work is to develop a reliable simulation tool for pollutant atmospheric dispersion, which gives a realistic approach and allows one to compute the pollutant concentrations over complex terrains with good accuracy. The factional brownian model, which furnishes more accurate concentration values, is introduced to calculate pollutant atmospheric dispersion. The model was validated on SIESTA international experiments.
5. METHOD OF SOLUTION
NOABL - Line Over Relaxation + Special adaptation of GAUSS procedure.
PAS - Monte Carlo Method.
6. RESTRICTIONS OR LIMITATIONS
Mesh size: variable from some meters to some hundreds meters.
Mesh number: variable depending on available real data (some hundreds points on each direction).
7. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME The running times are variable. The efficiencies are good for NOABL for few processors (up to 90%) and decrease with the number of processors. For PAS, the efficiencies are excellent due to the Monte Carlo method. Running times are variable depending on the accuracy required.
8. COMPUTER HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS
MESYST can run on the CRAY T3E parallel machine. Minimal storage requirements are ~3.0 Mbytes. Some of the modules have been run on Sun and MEIKO.
9. COMPUTER SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
Fortran and C compilers are required. PVM or MPI is required to run in parallel mode. CRE_TOPO, NOABL, and PAS work under UNICOS/mk 2.0. NOABL also runs under Solaris 2.3 and MEIKO 1.4.08. Machine-specific statements are provided in some makefiles for Cray, DEC Alpha, and AIX. The codes were not tested at either the NEA Data Bank or at RSICC. There is no documentation to guide novice users on installation or execution.
