Aerodynamic building downwash is an important part of air quality dispersion modeling. The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) initiated a development program to address deficiencies in the downwash algorithms in the Industrial Source Complex (ISCST3) air dispersion model. The result of the project is a set of algorithms called PRIME (Plume Rise Model Enhancements) which were added to ISCST3. The new model was called ISC-PRIME. As part of the project, EPRI contracted with ENSR to prepare an independent evaluation of ISC-PRIME using a model evaluation protocol negotiated with the U.S. EPA. This report describes the databases used in the evaluation and the results of the model performance evaluation.
