I want to use user-defined wind(Wind Type=6) in inflowdyn.
Do you have an example file using user-defined wind?
Thank you for your time.

Best regards,
Hyeonjeong Ahn

Dear Hyeongjeong.Ahn,

I don't have a full example, but WindType = 6 requires that you supply your own source code and recompile FAST / OpenFAST. There is a template provided through source file IfW_UserWind.f90.
