Blind test

Monday May 4, 2015 10:03

During the plenary Avatar meeting in Copenhagen in December 2014, it was decided to organize a blind test campaign in order to compare several tools with each other and then with the measurements. This blind test is also open to research centers, universities and industry who are not involved in Avatar project.

For the blind test campaign, three cases will be used. In this document and underlying data files, the test cases are described and the analysis conditions are given. The selected test cases are:

Case 1:      High Reynolds number characterization of DU00-W-212 airfoil: wind tunnel tests performed in the pressurized DNW-HDG wind tunnel.
Case 2:      FFA-W3-241 Airfoil equipped with vortex generators at Re=1.5e6 performed in the wind tunnel of NTUA
Case 3:      DU95W180 airfoil with dynamic flap in steady and unsteady flow at Re=1.0e6 performed in the wind tunnel of TUDelft.

The results of the blind test will be presented at a side event during the next EWEA conference in November 2015 in Paris.

Deadlines for calculation results is June 1st for AVATAR projectpartners (to be discussed at the next plenary meeting in June). October 10th for external participants. To be discussed at the EWEA conference in November 2015 in Paris.
