09:00 - 10:30 Advanced modeling of offshore and stratified flow

Share this session on:

Resource assessment  
Onshore      Offshore    


Room: Montparnasse

In this session on advanced flow modelling focus will be on the following issues: modelling flow under stable atmospheric conditions, tools for offshore wind farm planning and the benefits of high-resolution modelling. The stable flows will be modelled with CFD codes in three different ways, applied to on-shore and coastal environments.

Learning objectives

Delegates will be able to explain:

  • why flow under stable conditions is different from neutral flow
  • the main additions to the CFD codes in order for the models to improve results under stable conditions
  • the main parts of a tool for offshore wind farm planning and how they work together
  • how increasing the resolution of models for resource assessment improves the value of the output  
This session will be chaired by:
Lars Landberg, Director and Group Leader, strategic research and innovation, renewables, DNV-GL, Denmark
