Validation Testing of the Prediction Accuracy of the Numerical Wind Synopsis Prediction Technique RIAM-COMPACT for the Case of the Bolund Experiment: Comparison against a Wind-Tunnel Experiment

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In the present study, wind conditions were numerically predicted for the site of the Bolund Experiment using the RIAM-COMPACT【○!R】 natural terrain version software, which is based on an LES turbulence model (CFD). In addition, airflow measurements were made using a split-fiber probe in the boundary layer wind tunnel of the Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo (a facility of the research group of Prof. Chisachi Kato). The characteristics of the airflow at and in the vicinity of the site of the Bolund Experiment were clarified. The study also examined the prediction accuracy of the LES turbulence simulations (CFD). The values of the streamwise (x) wind velocity predicted by the CFD model were generally in good agreement with those from the wind tunnel experiment at all points and heights examined, demonstrating the validity of CFD based on LES turbulence modeling.
