Abstract


We develop and implement a numerical model to simulate the effect of photocatalytic asphalt on reducing the concentration of nitrogen monoxide (NO) due to the presence of heavy traffic in an urban environment. The contributions in this paper are threefold: we model and simulate the spread and breakdown of pollution in an urban environment, we provide a parameter estimation process that can be used to find missing parameters, and finally, we train and compare this simulation with different data sets. We analyse the results and provide an outlook on further research.
