    • Abstract

       

      In this work, an analytical solution for the steady-state fractional advection-diffusion equation was investigated to simulate the dispersion of air pollutants in a finite media. The authors propose a method that uses classic integral transform technique (CITT) to solve the transformed problem with a fractional derivative, resulting in a more general solution. We compare the solutions with data from real experiment. Physical consequences are discussed with the connections to generalised diffusion equations. In the wake of these analysis, the results indicate that the present solutions are in good agreement with those obtained in the literature. This report demonstrates that fractional equations have come of age as a decisive tool to describe anomalous transport processes.
