Air Quality Modelling on the Contribution of Brake Wear Emissions to Particulate Matter Concentrations Using a High-Resolution Brake Use Inventory is now available from Daniel Wakeling, Ricardo, on the EuroBrake website. He answers a few related questions in this Spotlight.
What do you find most interesting about the topic you are presenting on?
An innovative method to rethink how to model the air pollution impacts of brake wear. Leads to some areas having much a much larger contribution of brake wear to ambient particulate matter.
How has coronavirus affected your work and has it had a direct impact on the work you are presenting?
Coronavirus has had no impact on my work.
Who do you think will be most interested in seeing your presentation and who would you most like to ask questions about it?
People that work in air pollution modelling, brake wear emissions, traffic modelling.
Dan Wakeling is a Senior Consultant at Ricardo Energy & Environment where he specialises in the analysis of vehicle emissions data. In 2018 and 2019, Dan worked on an innovative method of better spatially apportioning emissions from brake wear based on high frequency vehicle measurements data. This work, completed for the FAT, is presented here.
