• Employing wind tunnel data to evaluate a turbulent spectral model 

      Alvarez y Alvarez, Gisela Marina; Demarco, Giuliano; Martins, Luis Gustavo; Puhales, Franciano S.; Acevedo, Otávio Costa; Loredo-Souza, Acir Mércio; Bodmann, Bardo Ernst Josef; Degrazia, Gervásio Annes; Wittwer, Adrián Roberto (Science Publishing Group, 2016)
      In this study, spectra obtained from wind tunnel data are compared with a model that describes observed atmospheric neutral spectra. The investigation points out that there is a good conformity between both spectra for ...
    • Escoamento na esteira de turbinas eólicas : análise espectral da turbulência mediante testes em túnel de vento 

      Wittwer, Adrián Roberto; Dorado, Rodrigo Martins; Degrazia, Gervásio Annes; Loredo-Souza, Acir Mércio; Bodmann, Bardo Ernst Josef (Universidade Federal de Santa Maria, 2016)
      A interação entre o vento incidente e os aerogeradores em um parque eólico provoca déficit de velocidade, no caso de geradores sucessivos, e aumento nos níveis de turbulência na esteira das turbinas eólicas. O escoamento ...
    • Flow in the wake of wind turbines : turbulence spectral snalysis by wind tunnel tests 

      Wittwer, Adrián Roberto; Dorado, Rodrigo Martins; Alvarez y Alvarez, Gisela Marina; Degrazia, Gervásio Annes; Bodmann, Bardo Ernst Josef; Loredo-Souza, Acir Mércio (Science Publishing Group, 2016)
      The interaction between the incident wind and wind turbines in a wind farm causes mean velocity deficit and increased levels of turbulence in the wake. The turbulent flow is characterized by the superposition of wind turbine ...
    • Wind tunnel experiments with neutral and convective boundary layer stabilities 

      Degrazia, Gervásio Annes; Bodmann, Bardo Ernst Josef; Wittwer, Adrián Roberto; Dorado, Rodrigo Martins; Degrazia, Franco Caldas; Demarco, Giuliano; Roberti, Débora Regina; Loredo-Souza, Acir Mércio; Acevedo, Otávio Costa; Martins, Luis Gustavo (Scientific & Academic Publishing, 2018)
      The present contribution reports on the status of the STROMA experiment. As a novelty a new experimental setup in a wind tunnel allows to simulate different stability regimes with vertical heat flux in either direction. ...
