World's first LES calculation of flow over a canopied hill

Canopy SimulationCanopy SimulationWindlab Systems in collaboration with NCAR, the USA's National Center for Atmospheric Research, have successfully completed a Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of wind flow over a canopied hill. Windlab's Chief Technical Officer Keith Ayotte remarked, "the project represents a significant advance in wind modelling technology. Results from this research are being applied by Windlab to further enhance our ability to predict wind strength and turbulence for wind energy applications"
