Abstract : An experimental investigation of the atmospheric boundary-layer flow on high roughness was conducted by simulating the flow over a forest canopy in a meteorological wind tunnel. The model forest canopy used consisted of plastic simulated-evergreen trees. The measurements were carried out at constant free-stream velocity and under thermally neutral conditions. Two canopy densities were tested to explore the effects of the roughness density on the flow. (Author)
