Wind. The average wind speed measured at a height of 1 m above the ground shall be less than 3 m/s; gusts shall be less than 5 m/s.
Wind. Testing shall be performed at wind speeds averaging less than 3 m/s with peak speeds less than 5 m/s. In addition, the vector component of the wind speed across the test track must be less than 2 m/s. Wind velocity shall be measured at 0.7 m above the track surface.
Wind. The horizontal wind distribution is closely linked geostrophically to the temperature and pressure distributions. The zonal wind, in particular, has traditionally been one of the fundamental climate simulation verification parameters. Overall, the zonal wind structure is well simulated in CAM3 (Figs. 6 and 7), and the biases are very similar to those exhibited by CCM3 (Hurrell et al. 1998). The CAM3 simulated mean zonal flow in the NH during winter is very similar to the ECMWF winds, with the strongest westerlies more than 40 m s−1 near 200 hPa. Between 35°N and 55°N, however, the zonally averaged westerlies in CAM3 are stronger than observed by a few meters per second, with a larger westerly bias evident during JJA. Over the SH, the simulated upper- tropospheric middle-latitude maximum during southern winter is about 2°–3° latitude nearer the equator than its NH winter counterpart, as observed. But in contrast to observations, it is stronger than the NH winter maximum by about 5 m s−1, contributing to a relatively large upper-tropospheric westerly bias. This bias also reflects another shortcoming of the CAM3 SH winter simulation: the observed maximum near 30°S is clearly separated from a second westerly maximum in the upper troposphere that continues into the stratosphere, a feature not well captured by CCM3 either. A westerly bias is also evident at these latitudes and heights during southern summer.In good agreement with observations, the simulated low-level easterlies are of nearly equal magnitude in each winter hemisphere and cover similar areas, and the upper- tropospheric tropical easterlies are much stronger in the NH than in the SH during summer. The summertime NH tropical easterlies in CAM3 are too strong (by ~ 4 m s−1) and extend too far poleward, an aspect that was slightly better in CCM3 but worse inearlier versions of the CCM (Hurrell et al. 1993). Another persistent problem in earlier versions of the model was a westerly wind bias near the equator in the upper troposphere during both seasons. This error was considerably reduced in CCM3, and is even smaller in CAM3 although still in excess of 4 m s−1 during JJA (Fig. 7).Regionally, in the upper troposphere, the strongest westerlies occur over the NH during winter (Fig. 8) and reach more than 70 m s−1 off the Asian coast and 40 m s−1 over the eastern United States and the western Atlantic. Westerlies extend across the equator over the Atlantic and central Pacific Oceans during northern winter,...
Wind. As set out in Chapter 12 of the ES, an assessment of the likely wind conditions as a result of the Development and the suitability of these in terms of pedestrian comfort has been undertaken. The assessment has been informed by appropriate meteorological data and computational fluid dynamics (CDF) modelling. CFD is a computer based modelling technique, which simulates the effect of wind on the built environment.The meteorological data for the Site shows that prevailing winds blow from the south-west throughout the year, which is typical for many areas of southern England, with the strongest winds during the winter season. There is a secondary peak from the north-east during the late spring and early summer. The winds from the north-east are not as strong as the prevailing winds from the south-west. The wind microclimate conditions throughout and surrounding the Site are generally as would be expected within an urban environment, ranging from acceptable for sitting use to leisure walking use during the windiest season.During the Development design process the CFD modelling results were used to inform the design of the Development and resulted in the southern façade being stepped and including a wider base to the building along the southern boundary to protect the ground level in King’s Head Yard.The demolition of the existing buildings would not be expected to have a significant effect on the wind conditions within, and immediately surrounding, the Site. As construction of the Development proceeds, the wind conditions of the Site would gradually change to the conditions of the completed Development.Following completion of the Development, and with mitigation measures in place such as localised screening and landscaping, the wind conditions likely to be experienced at all locations within, and immediately surrounding, the Site have been found to be suitable for the intended uses. These locations include pedestrian thoroughfares, entrances, and amenity spaces including above ground level terraces. It is therefore considered that wind conditions would not significantly affect pedestrian comfort or safety either within the Development or for the streets or buildings in proximity to the Site, following completion of the Development.
Wind. In the coastal zone wind blows mainly from two directions: NE and SE. The NE winds blow mainly in the winter season and the SE winds during summer. The maximum average wind speed is 80 km/ hr (50m/hr) 10. 4.2.2 Land Use‌
Wind. Binni's prevailing wind comes from the North-east and is usually light to moderate and always stronger on the coast than inland. However, the winds become increasingly unpredictable from June to August when the heavier rains come - though the climate change has resulted in less extremes than before.
Wind. Pioneer is a participant in a utility-scale wind project that will be located on Pioneer-owned surface property that will generate renewable electricity for use in its operations in the Permian Basin. Although Pioneer’s investment to date in this project has been limited, Pioneer’s agreement to purchase the electricity generated by the project facilitates the investment by the project developer. Pioneer is evaluating the potential for additional wind farms on its properties.
