Title: The consideration of forestry effects in wind energy resource assessment
Authors: Desmond, Cian
Keywords: CFD

Issue Date: 2014
Publisher: © Cian Desmond
Abstract: Research focused on the reduction of uncertainties when considering the wind resource in the vicinity of forestry. This thesis examined the use of high density laser scanning technology to capture the structure of forest canopies along with the measurement of thermal effects using sonic anemometry. Methodologies were then developed to include these high quality data in Computational Fluid Dynamics software in order to allow the complex nature of forestry flows to be considered analytically.
