Abstract
The RANS high close approach for the turbulent fluxes of momentum, heat and mass for simulating of the circulation structure and dispersion pollutant over the urban heat island in a stably stratified environment under nearly calm conditions is formulated. The turbulent fluxes of momentum − uiuj , heat −uiθ and mass −uic in this approach determined from the gradient diffusion type models with the turbulent kinetic energy (TKE), its spectral consumption (or dissipation), the temperature variance and the covariance for cθ as parameters which are obtained from transport equations. Such the RANS approach minimizes difficulties in the turbulent transport modeling in a stably stratified environment and reduces efforts needed for the numerical implementation of the numerical model. The simulation results demonstrates that the three-four equations RANS approach is able to predict the structure of turbulent circulation flow induced by the heat island that is in good agreement with the experimental data.
