Conditions of wind and air flow near windbreaks as related to the angle of incidence of the wind with practical conclusions, based on wind-tunnel tests.

Conditions of wind and air flow near windbreaks as related to the angle of incidence of the wind with practical conclusions, based on wind-tunnel tests.

Z. Acker-u. PflBau, 10

The results of the tests showed the superiority of windbreaks of a lattice structure (e.g., metal hurdles and particularly coconut-matting) over solid constructions. The latter should be somewhat raised above the soil surface, thereby reducing the harmful effects of air flow around the ends of the windbreak and providing a more efficient leeward protection against the eroding effects of wind.
