Abstract:

The results of a study of the transient production of CO and other species in a ceiling layer during the development of the layer are presented. The aim of this work is to produce a set of data that can be used as a check on models for species production, particularly of carbon monoxide production, in strongly vitiated ceiling layers under transient conditions.
