WindStation 2.0.2

WindStation is a software tool for the simulation of wind flow over complex topography. This is diagnostic simulator that solves the full 3D Navier-Stokes equations using a boundary-fitted coordinate system. The software is a Windows application based on a user-friendly graphical interface. Physical simulation: · Air flow is described with the full 3D Navier-Stokes equations · Turbulence is simulated with the k-e model · Terrain roughness is taken into account through the ground shear stress modelling · Atmospheric stability is modelled by solving the energy equation Main input data: · Terrain elevation data in ASCII ArcView grid file format · Terrain roughness data in ASCII ArcView grid file format (optional) · Wind speed and wind direction at punctual locations (meteorological stations readings, for instantce) or, optionally, a vertical profile of wind speed, wind direction and turbulence quantities Post-processing: · Terrain elevation and /or terrain roughness visualization · Wind field representation at a specified height from ground level, using vectorial display or colour contour display · Visualization in the vertical plane · Data export into text files for the whole 3D computed field or at selected locations
