The Fifth Symposium on OpenFOAM in Wind Energy (SOWE 2017)

Conference description:

The Fifth Symposium on OpenFOAM® in Wind Energy (SOWE 2017) is hosted by the Department of Wind Energy at CENER (National Renewable Energy Centre of Spain). As in the previous editions, the symposium offers a space to share the latest developments based on OpenFOAM® for Wind Energy applications. The symposium brings together experts, beginners, developers and final end users to discuss the research results and techniques to solve the new demands of the Wind Energy sector.

The First Edition of SOWE was hosted by ForWind and Fraunhofer IWES in Oldenburg (Germany).

The Second Edition of SOWE was hosted by NREL and RASEI in Boulder (Colorado, USA).

The Third Edition of SOWE was hosted by Politecnico di Milano in Milan (Italy).

The Fourth Edition of SOWE was hosted by Delft University of Technology (The Netherlands).

Date and venue:

The conference will be at 26, 27, 28 April 2017 at the ADItech Headquarters.

Address: C/ Tajonar, 20 – 31006 Pamplona (Navarra) – Spain.

Topics:

The symposium will cover a wide spread of topics linked to the wind energy research area. Most relevant topics are reported below and the presentations will be arranged according to the described arguments. The proposed topics are not limiting, since they are not intended to limit the participation to the discussion on other wind energy applications in OpenFOAM®.

  • Atmospheric flows (including flow over complex terrains and sea) 
  • HAWT & VAWT wind turbine aerodynamics and wakes
  • Vertical Axis Wind turbines
  • Small scale and urban wind energy applications
  • Site assessment and wind plant aerodynamics
  • Offshore wind aerodynamics and hydrodynamics
  • Other (including meshing, algorithms, post-processing, parallel performance, etc.)
