EVALUATION OF SOME COMMONLY USED HIGHWAY DISPERSION MODELS

This paper presents an evaluation of four gaussian (GM, HIWAY, AIRPOL-4, CALINE-2), and three numerical (DANARD, MROAD 2, ROADS) models with the tracer gas data collected in the General Motors experiment. Various statistical techniques are employed to quantify the predictive capability of each of the above models. For this data set, the model with the best performance in accurately predicting the measured concentrations was the GM model.
