Description

This function extrapolates the wind speed at a certain height by using the log law. The increase or decrease of wind speed as a function of height above ground can be computed by this logarithmic expression.

Usage

1
wind_log(Vref, Zref, Z0, Z)

Arguments

Vref

known velocity at height Zref

Zref

reference height where Vref is known

Z0

roughness length in the current wind direction

Z

height above ground level for velocity to be calculated

Value

Wind speed values computed at certain height (Z)
