SOWE 2016

The Fourth Symposium on OpenFOAM in Wind Energy

 

Conference description:

The Fourth Symposium on OpenFOAM® in Wind Energy (SOWE 2016), hosted by Delft University of Technology will bring together people who use OpenFOAM® for wind energy. The symposium aims to present the state of the art in wind energy computations using OpenFOAM®, allow people to share knowledge, and identify common problems that should be addressed.

The First Edition of SOWE was hosted by ForWind and Fraunhofer IWES in Oldenburg (Germany).
The Second Edition of SOWE was hosted by NREL and RASEI in Boulder (Colorado, USA).
The Third Edition of SOWE was hosted by Politecnico di Milano in Milan (Italy).

 

Date and venue:

The conference will be at 2nd, 3rd and 4th of May 2016 at the TU Delft Science Centre in Delft, the Netherlands.

 

Topics:

The symposium will cover a wide spread of topics linked to the wind energy research area.

Most relevant topics are reported below and the presentations will be arranged according to the described arguments. The proposed topics are not limiting, since they are not intended to limit the participation to the discussion on other wind energy applications in OpenFOAM®.

  • Atmospheric flows (including flow over complex terrains and sea) 
  • HAWT & VAWT wind turbine aerodynamics and wakes
  • Small scale and urban wind energy applications
  • Site assessment and wind plant aerodynamics
  • Offshore wind aerodynamics and hydrodynamics
  • Other (including meshing, algorithms, post-processing, parallel performance, etc.)

 

Deadlines:

Abstract deadline: 8 March 2016 (late submissions could still be considered, email abstracts to sowe2016@tudelft.nl)
Abstract selection notification: 15 March 2016
Paper deadline: 29 April 2016
