Wind resource assessment normally involves collecting wind data using meteorological masts or executing numerical meteorological models. This data is then analysed using industry standard software (WAsP) to generate a Windfield map used for wind farm planning and construction. Until recently, there was no methodology to validate this Windfield map due to insufficient observational data. This shortcoming has been addressed in this study using high spatial resolution wind observations from Doppler LIDAR.

Mostafanejad, Ahmad Zaim (Sam Nejad) (2013)A major consideration in the design of single storey buildings is the wind load imposed on the walls and roof of the structure. This wind load is mainly (by definition) the result of the wind velocity at the area of the ...
Experimental investigation of the effect of wind speed and wind direction on a solar chimney power plantAja, Aja; Al-Kayiem, H.; Abdul Karim, Z. (2013)Wind has been reported to have adverse effect on the performance of traditional solar chimney power plants but no reference has been made on the wind effect on inclined solar chimneys. An experimental investigation on the ...
