The risk of air pollutants like particulate matters on human beings has been widely reported. One main concern is its health impact on people through direct emission or resuspension. In China with the quick growth in private car ownership, the worries about the influence of the moving vehicles on particulate dispersion is growing. In this study, the influence of a moving object on wick formation and particulate dispersion was investigated. An advanced numerical model was developed, in which the unsteady Eulerian RANS model was applied for simulating the airflow, the modified drift-flux model for modelling particulate dispersion, and the dynamic mesh model for mimicking the moving vehicle. The results show that the vehicular movement induces three noticeable vortexes around the moving body, and the faster the running speed, the stronger the secondary airflow generated.
