The Pollutant Spreading Model AUSTAL 2000 Is Not Validated

With individual examples [1 to 4] Schenk has demonstrated for AUSTAL2000 that the II. Law of Thermodynamics and the mass conservation law are violated. In [5] Truckenmüller et. 13 alii one contradicts and explains that AUSTAL is verified and validated yet. However, it turns out that there is a trivial solution in the posted derivation of the reference solution. It will be noted that this solution is not usable and performs speculative deposition rates and thus hurts the balancing differential equation. The correct nontrivial solution, which is suitable for the description of deposition and sedimentation are given in this paper. Beyond the generality of the earlier objections raised against AUSTAL occupied by valid integral theorems. They are not restricted to individual cases. Homogeneity tests turn out to be useless trivial cases and are not suitable for validation. For identical tasks, different solutions are given and direct users astray. It is claimed to have taken into account sources at 200m height, but the simulation results do not show the effect of high altitude sources. Criticizable terminology shows that the authors of AUSTAL have little busy with the basics of momentum, heat and mass transfer laws. In the context of other inconsistencies, the author concludes that the grounds given by Janicke & Janicke tests to sedimentation and deposition uniformity and could not have taken place. The life story of AUSTAL 2000 begins in 1984 with a fatal error and via LASAT to AUSTAL. She has found in 2016 a temporary end with an unprecedented sleight of hand. Mathematics and mechanics are used as valid tools of an incorruptible evidence.
