It works! Validation of extreme wind method published

Friday 16 Sep 16
A new report validates the Spectral Correction (SC) extreme wind method as implemented in the WAsP Engineering 4 software package. It shows that the SC method is quite accurate and very consistent when applied to one-year on-site wind data.

For the SC method, there is no need for the WAsP Engineering user to provide any long-term wind data to calculate extreme winds. Instead, WAsP Engineering uses CFDDA long-term reference wind data, which is made available by DTU Wind Energy on a computer server in the cloud. 

The full report may be downloaded from DTU Orbit.

This YouTube video demonstrates how to make reliable extreme wind predictions with just a short period of local measurements using WAsP Engineering 4
