Industrial ventilation problems are linked with plumes above heat sources. This paper proposes an experimental study of dynamic, thermal and concentration fields that develop from cylindrical complex or rectangular sources. The metrology allows the measurement of local velocities and temperatures but also of the concentration of a tracer gas (helium). The results are compared with the classical analytical formulae, more particularly in the proximal field and also to results issued from simulation.
