The article presents issues related to numerical simulations of the spread of dangerous substances in the air after emergency release from industrial installation. The work contains the results of numerical simulations of dispersion of ammonia and chlorine after emergency release made by using the ANSYS program, validated based on commonly used models: Gauss and heavy gas. Validation of experimental results based on research and empirical models allowed the selection of boundary parameters and the implementation of dispersion modelling in 3-d space taking into account technical infrastructure. Existing empirical models include terrain obstacles in the form of average roughness parameter, which is shown in general by the range of the danger zone without local topographic conditions. The numerical approach to modelling, in contrast to empirical models, allows to more accurately show the physicochemical phenomena occurring after release in 3-d space, both in the area around the chemical equipment and the buildings along the dangerous substance cloud.
