Wind tunnel studies of gas dispersion over complex terrain model were performed in VZLU Prague. The terrain model with a ground-level emission source was mounted in a boundary layer wind tunnel. Flow and concentration field behind the source was measured. The model presented an area of the Liberec city, 9.0 × 2.4 km in full scale. The emission source was mounted at the position of a heating plant in the model centre and concentration field was measured using flame ionisation detectors. The experimental results will be used for validation and verification of a new computational dispersion model intended for use in case of accidents with dangerous gas leakages in selected areas in Czech Republic.
