Research Interest
Much work had been carried out to implement the effect of canopies into CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations. For the sake of reducing the uncertainty associated with the previous models, understanding the actual canopy morphology is very much appreciated for modeling the turbulent wind flow through and above forest. Thus, porous media analogy is used to investigate the most effective forest parameters. Then, high level of canopy structural detailed information derived from high density LiDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) point cloud data is utilized into CFD by conducting LES (Large Eddy Simulation) and various RaNS (Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes) models. Furthermore, to provide an extensive validation, in situ measurements (obtained at Skinnarila forest, near the campus of Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland) are compared with series of CFD simulations. This advanced canopy porous medium model based laser scanning data may allow a more accurate description of complexity of the flow field and the wake recirculation behind the forest.
