Abstract
The report gives results of a study simulating the establishment of the severity of stationary air pollution sources. The potential environmental impact of an emission source can be determined from the source severity (the ground level concentration contribution of pollutants relative to some potentially hazardous concentration of the same species). The frequency distribution of the severity of well-documented source types can be examined deterministically. A statistical approach is required to simulate the frequency distribution of the severity of source types that are complex or involve a large number of emission points in order to ultimately assess such sources. A Monte Carlo simulation technique is described in this report, together with efficient algorithms for fitting the inverse Weibull, gamma, normal, and log-normal cumulative density functions. Significant correlation is demonstrated between deterministic and simulated severity results using coal-fired steam/electric utilities as an example.
