The WINDBENCH platform is developed to guide developers and end-users on best practices for using wind flow models based on quality assurance procedures that are mutually recognized by the wind community as standards of good practice. To this end, the platform offers an updated inventory of models, a repository of quality checked test cases for model verification and validation and documentation to orient the user. Standards of good practice are built from model intercomparison benchmarks with different levels of complexity.
