  2. 2. Flight strategies in migrating birds: when and how to fly

    University dissertation from Martin Green, Dept. of Animal Ecology, Ecology Building, S-223 62 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Martin Green; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; geese; waders; terns; Animal ecology; Djurekologi; wind tunnel; radio telemetry; satellite telemetry; radar; formation flight; flight speed adjustment; wind drift; energy savings; departure decisions; bird migration; wind;

    Abstract : Wind has a profound influence on migrating birds since it inevitably will influence travel time and energy expenditure. In this thesis I investigate how migrating birds are affected by, and use winds. READ MORE

  3. 3. Wind-turbine wake flows - Effects of boundary layers and periodic disturbances

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ylva Odemark; KTH.; KTH.; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; wind power; wind-turbine model; wind tunnel; porous disc; hot-wire anemometry; particle image velocimetry; blade element momentum method; large eddy simulations; actuator disc method;

    Abstract : The increased fatigue loads and decreased power output of a wind turbine placed in the wake of another turbine is a well-known problem when building new wind-power farms and a subject of intensive research. These problems are caused by the velocity gradients and high turbulence levels present in the wake of a turbine. READ MORE

  4. 4. Wind turbine wakes controland vortex shedding

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Davide Medici; KTH.; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wind Energy; Power Optimisation; Active Control; Yaw; Vortex; TECHNOLOGY Engineering mechanics Mechanical and thermal engineering Mechanical energy engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk mekanik Mekanisk och termisk energiteknik Mekanisk energiteknik;

    Abstract : Wind tunnel studies of the wake behind a model wind turbine have been made in order to get a better understanding of wake development as well as the possibility to predict the power output from downstream turbines working in the wake of an upstream one. Both two-component hot-wire anemometry as well as particle image velocimetry (PIV) have been used to map the flow field. READ MORE

  5. 5. Investigations of Flow Conditions in an Automotive Wind Tunnel

    University dissertation from ; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Gothenburg

    Author : Emil Ljungskog; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Wind tunnel; Ground simulation; Tangential blowing; CFD simulations; Slotted walls;

    Abstract : As vehicle manufacturers seek to shorten the development time of new models, wind tunnel testing of prototype vehicles needs to be partially replaced by virtual simulations. However, this requires thorough validation of the virtual methods, which is done by comparison to wind tunnel tests. READ MORE
