I don't have my notes on these models anymore, but the code documents the two values as follows:

Code: Select all

phiM   =  1.0 + 4.7*zL  ! Non-Dimensional Wind Shear
phiE   = (1.0 + 2.5*zL^0.6)^(3/2)
where zL is a stability parameter based on RICH_NO:

Code: Select all

if (RICH_NO <= 0)
   zL = RICH_NO
else if (RICH_NO <= 1/6)
   zL = RICH_NO / ( 1 - 5*RICH_NO )
else
   zL = 1
end
