  • A wind field downscaling strategy based on domain segmentation and transfer functions 

    Barcons, Jordi; Avila, Matias; Folch, Arnau (Wiley, 2018-02-06)
    Article
    Open Access
    This paper presents a novel methodology for mesoscale‐to‐microscale downscaling of near‐surface wind fields. The model chain consists on the Weather Research and Forecast mesoscale model and the Alya‐CFDWind microscale ...
  • Diurnal cycle RANS simulations applied to wind resource assessment 

    Barcons, Jordi; Avila, Matias; Folch, Arnau (Wiley, 2019-02)
    Article
    Open Access
    Microscale computational fluid dynamics (CFD) models can be used for wind resource assessment on complex terrains. These models generally assume neutral atmospheric stratification, an assumption that can lead to inaccurate ...
