Abstract or Summary
  • An experimental study was made of the average and turbulent wind characteristics of the flow over a model of a coastal headland. The scale of the model was 300:1, corresponding to a prototype size of 500 m. The data for validation of the model study was obtained from instruments mounted on a 27.5 m tower constructed on the headland, Yaquina Head, for this experiment. Comparison is presented of average and turbulent flow characteristics over the model and the prototype under the conditions of neutral stability and wind velocities greater than 600 cm/s. The similarity of the two average velocity profiles was used to demonstrate that the model flow represented the prototype flow. This has offered new information on scaling relations of similarity parameters necessary for wind tunnel terrain model flow studies.
