Abstract

The flow field over Berlengas has been simulated on both a sub scale wind tunnel model in a low speed wind tunnel and in a computational fluid dynamics simulation. The CFD model has been validated by the results of the wind tunnel simulation.
A simulation of measurements that would be made by a ZephIR LiDAR mounted on the island has been undertaken using the CFD results
A method by which the distortion to the flow field over an offshore platform, measured by either a met mast or LiDAR, can be corrected back to the free stream value has been presented and verified.
Correction factors have been calculated and are included in the appendix to this report.
Based on the CFD and wind tunnel data it is was evident that significant flow distortion exists up to 425m above the island.
