Original creation date: January 2003

A computer model named the "Dynamic Component Program" (DCP) was specifically designed for predicting the dispersion of dust from haul trucks at surface mines. Validation of the DCP was completed by comparing its results with the results of the ISC3 model and with actual dust measurements taken from two operating mine sites. Comparisons of the field measurements, predictions of the ISC3 model and the predictions of the DCP demonstrate that the results from the DCP represent, on average, an 85% improvement over the ISC3 dust dispersion model results.
