Abstract : The objective of this study was to determine how the presence of a typical meteorological tower disturbs the local wind pattern. This study provides data which can be used to correct wind speeds measured by anemometers in the field. Experimental results in this paper are based on data taken upstream of, around, and downstream from a 1:4 scale model of a 20 ft segment of the prototype tower. (Author)
