Utilization And Examination Of A Mass Consistent Wind Flow Model, Joanne M. Carrol Jan 1983

Utilization And Examination Of A Mass Consistent Wind Flow Model, Joanne M. Carrol

Wind Energy Center Masters Theses Collection

MATHEW, a mass consistent wind flow model is applied to given areas in Princeton and Windsor, Massachusetts for the purpose of determining wind flow fields in those areas and examining the HATIIEW program itself. The MATHEW model which was originated by Sherman at Lawrence Livermore Laboratories to give a three-component time-independent nondivergent wind velocity field. The model has been verified by its creators and is accepted as a valid method for calculating wind fields. A description of the model is given. The analytic foundation of the model is elucidated, the numerical technique is described and the architecture of the MATHEW ...
