Mann model in TurbSim

Postby HansBørge.Pedersen » Fri Jan 10, 2014 11:44 am


I just have a question about if the Mann uniform shear turbulence model is being implemented in the next TurbSim update?
The current TurbSim User's Guide states that it's on the list of further development.

I would much prefer to use TurbSim instead of the other few scripts out there which lacks documentation.

As always, thank you for all your great work making knowledge and tools for renewables available for students like me :)

Hi, Hans.

Thanks for the comments. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to implement the Mann model in TurbSim in the near future. We do hope to have a new release of TurbSim by the end of this calendar year, but the Mann model will not be part of it.
