A simple numerical model, implemented through COMSOL Multiphysics 5.2 (© COMSOL AB), that can be usefully adopted to evaluate the effect of greenery in the pollution reduction in urban canyons, is presented. The model can be easily tailored to account for different plant species and greenery shapes. Some preliminary results obtained with reference to green façades and green hedges show that a good reduction in the pollutant dispersion in the canyon is achievable.

Abstract

A simple numerical model, implemented through COMSOL Multiphysics 5.2 (© COMSOL AB), that can be usefully adopted to evaluate the effect of greenery in the pollution reduction in urban canyons, is presented. The model can be easily tailored to account for different plant species and greenery shapes. Some preliminary results obtained with reference to green façades and green hedges show that a good reduction in the pollutant dispersion in the canyon is achievable.
