Abstract Dispersion of pollutants in densely populated urban areas is a research area of clear importance. Currently, few numerical tools exist capable of describing airflow and dispersion patterns in these complex regions in a time efficient manner. QUIC, Quick Urban & Industrial Complex, a fast-running flow and dispersion simulation program has shown promise in this area. QUIC flow patterns were compared against two wind tunnel data sets, namely: one for a simple two-dimensional building array; another for a complex group of buildings surrounding the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan. In both cases, QUIC satisfactorily simulated the flow patterns depicting channeling and recirculation patterns within particular street canyons.
