In this paper the models of weakly and strongly buoyant
plumes are revisited and compactly rewritten with a sys
tematic and unifying approach. Clearly casting the physi
cal problem into the mathematical one is essential prior to
any simulation to be carried out properly. In the process
it is found that early traditional assumptions might be no
longer necessary. A simulation based on these models with
real world data was carried out successfully.
