Abstract

Pollutants such as carbon monoxide (CO) and particulate matter (PM) emitted at construction sites could significantly affect nearby air quality. The main drivers include equipment type and usage, their emission factors, tasks being performed, terrain, and local weather conditions. In this study, a computational framework is proposed to assess pollutant concentration levels and conformation to national ambient air quality standards. In this framework, AERMOD is used to quantify the concentration variation of CO emitted by construction equipment deployed and under varying weather conditions.
