The threat of accidental or deliberate toxic chemicals released into public spaces is a significant concern to public safety. The real-time detection and mitigation of such hazardous contaminants has the potential to minimize harm and save lives. We develop a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) flow control model with the capability of detecting and mitigating such contaminants. Furthermore, we develop a physical prototype to then test the computer model. The physical prototype is in its final stages of construction. Its current state, along with preliminary examples of the flow control model are presented throughout this paper.
