highway wind turbine

Recommended Posts


Me and my bachelor project team are working on a vertical axis wind turbine to be installed on the middle of highways. We're in denmark, so the wind turbine would benefit from both the natural wind and the passing cars but we have a problem with this: we are making all our tests on simulation softwares like Qblade and WaSP and we don't know how to sum the forces of the passing cars and the natural wind.

With these softwares it is possible to make a full detailed analysis of the natural wind and we have found sources for the average wind speed generated by cars, but we still can't figure out how to combine these two. If anyone know something about it or could give us a useful reference, it would be very much appreciated!
