WINDBENCH: Benchmarking of Flow Models for Wind Applications
The WINDBENCH platform is developed to guide developers and end-users on best practices for using wind flow models using 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.
The platform is at an early stage of development. It will be continuously updated and improved based on the feedback of the registered users. During this initial testing phase only participants of the IEA Wind Task 31 "Wakebench" or EERA-DTOC projects will be allowed to register.
