FLOWSTAR - A Model of Airflow over Complex Terrain
Entry ID: CERC_FLOWSTAR

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: FLOWSTAR is a model developed by CERC for calculating profiles of the mean airflow and turbulence in the atmospheric boundary layer. The model includes the impact of hilly terrain and the effects of stratification and variable surface roughness.

Applications of FLOWSTAR include:

-wind farms: predictions of the wind field for wind farm planning,
-wind engineering: predictions of the flow in the proximity of a wind-sensitive structure
-forestry: assessing where forests are most exposed to destructive winds,
-dispersion: FLOWSTAR is used in the ADMS suite of models, CERC's air dispersion models, for calculating plume trajectory and spread in complex terrain
