Examples

  • If it blows horizontally over the open end of a vertical tube it causes a decrease of pressure, but this fact is not of any practical use in anemometry, because the magnitude of the decrease depends on the wind striking the tube exactly at right angles to its axis, the most trifling departure from the true direction causing great variations in the magnitude.

  • The firms plan to amalgamate their expertise in engineering and anemometry to provide accurate data and predictions on the yield, noise and visual impact of turbines to wind farm developers.
