  • Numerical calculation of the three-dimensional motion of wind-borne debris

    Authors
    Peter J. Richards, N. Williams, B. Laing, M. McCarty, M. Pond
    Journal
    Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics

    2008
    Most previous studies of wind-borne debris have only considered two-dimensional (2D) motion. While this can demonstrate many basic principles, it is a special case that is unlikely to occur in a real ... REGISTER NOW TO SEE MORE
  • Validation of Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes simulations for International America's Cup Class spinnaker force coefficients in an atmospheric boundary layer

    Three semirigid models for International America's Cup Class spinnakers were tested in a wind tunnel with a simulated atmospheric boundary layer. These experiments were also simulated using a commerci... REGISTER NOW TO SEE MORE
  • Cross-wind excitation of a 2D square prism with vibrating leading edge flaps

    This paper presents and discusses the results of wind tunnel measurements of the pressure distributions on the lateral sides of a 2D square prism with vibrating leading edge flaps. The flaps were driv... REGISTER NOW TO SEE MORE
  • America's cup downwind sails-vertical wings or horizontal parachutes?

    Analysis of the boat speed polar for a typical International America's Cup Class yacht shows that the normal downwind apparent wind angles are between 90° and 135° in winds over 5 m/s (10 knot). This ... REGISTER NOW TO SEE MORE
