The aim of this paper is the study and the validation of a method for odor sampling on solid area sources. This aim is achieved by considering a suitable theoretical model that accounts for all the variables involved in the volatilization process of odorous compounds from solids into the atmosphere. The simulation of the emission of odors from a solid surface was achieved by designing a suitable experimental setup and a specific wind tunnel for laboratory tests. The results of the tests show a good correspondence between the theoretical data derived from the adopted model and the experimental data. The verification of the possibility of describing the wind tunnel functioning with a theoretical volatilization model proves the applicability of this device for sampling on solid area sources.
