3D turbulent wind for wind energy: Kaimal and improved von Karman models



14 Aug 2013 (Updated )

Generation of 3D turbulent wind for aero-elastic purpose

| Watch this File

File Information

This submission is meant for all thos professional involved, on a daily base, with the generation of turbulent wind files directly portable to aero-elastic solvers, such as GH BLADED, FAST, Flex, etc.

The code structure is straight-forward as well as keen on possible further development.

The submission includes:
1) an external txt Input file
2) the core of the code

Supported turbulent Models:
1) Kaimal
2) Improved von Karman
In the case of Kaimal model, it is possible to switch between two different Coherence models:
1a) TurbSim-wise Coherence
1b) BLADED-wise Coherence

Required Products MATLAB
MATLAB release MATLAB 7.14 (R2012a)
