Air-flow characteristics within and over rough arrays: a wind-tunnel study


Kuwait Journal of Science and Engineering 26(2): 355-375
Air-flow characteristics within and over rough arrays: a wind-tunnel study
Wind tunnel tests were carried out to investigate the change in the flow regime in relation to cylindrical element concentration. Wood dowels of a uniform diameter, 2.3 cm, and of one of two heights, 2.3 and 4.6 cm, were placed along the length of the wind tunnel working section (250 cm) in a diagonal array and in rows normal to the flow using two different spacings, 3.45 and 9.2 cm. The array was then exposed to three preselected shear velocities (28.8, 32.9 and 45.1 cm/s).
