Restricted access - publisher's policyThe flow around the blade of a horizontal axis wind turbine wind tunnel model, operating at its optimal tip speed ratio in axial flow, has been investigated by means of stereoscopic particle image velocimetry (SPIV). The ...
Evaluation of the lifting line vortex model approximation for estimating the local blade flow fields in horizontal-axis wind turbines Sant, T.; Campo Gatell, Vanessa del; Micallef, D.; Ferreira, C. Simao (2016-03-01)
Open AccessLifting line vortex models have been widely used to predict flow fields around wind turbine rotors. Such models are known to be deficient in modelling flow fields close to the blades due to the assumption that blade vorticity ...
