The Wind Physics graduate
- masters an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the field of fluid dynamics, both theoretical and experimental, alongside relevant engineering methods and applications, including a critical awareness of current issues and developments in the subject,
- is able to apply advanced techniques for flow measurement and computation, as well as mathematical concepts and tools, with a strong component of advanced statistical knowledge and its application to the analysis of meteorological time series,
- understands the mechanisms responsible for winds in the atmosphere, the atmospheric boundary layer and the phenomena that define its development,
- is able to model and analyse the interaction between topography, atmospheric boundary layer and energy yield as well as the interaction of boundary layer and wind farms, incl. wake effects,
- masters the topic of atmospheric turbulence and its impact on loading of structures, with application to wind turbines,
- has practical knowledge and experience of field measurement.
The Wind Physics track allows students master the specific technical knowledge required in one or more of the sub-fields of Wind Resource Assessment.
