Abstract

In this study, wind characteristics and energy potential of IUS Campus region is investigated. Assessment of the site is carried out by using turbulent flow models. Commercial software STAR CCM+ was used to solve turbulent flow equations. STAR CCM+ is a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software package that solves Navier-Stokes equations that define fluid flow, by using numerical techniques.
