Abstract

This paper summarises results of sensitivity studies for the use of ANSYS CFD software, on two complex sites for which data from meteorological masts has been made available; the Bolund Hill on the Danish coast, and Nant y Moch, in central Wales. The results show encouraging agreement with the available data and indicate appropriate choices of model and numerical parameters for studies on these types of terrai
