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 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.
The Windbench platform is migrating to a new modular design and moving some contents to open-access so you may experience problems accessing data during this transition period. The model and test case inventory generated during the first phase of the IEA Task 31 Wakebench is now publically available. If you want to participate in any of the existing benchmarks you still need to log-in with your Windbench user account to get access to data.
