The global market for wind energy at windfarms onshore and offshore is booming, and it has never before been so important to increase the effectiveness of how turbines are harvesting the wind. At Cape Horn Engineering we apply our expertise in flow analysis and simulation automation from America’s Cup sailing wings technology into wind turbineRead more
In 2012 Cape Horn Engineering was appointed by the global energy company Repsol to conduct CFD simulations on two types of off-shore wind turbine platforms. Floating platforms are exposed to the challenging environment of high winds, strong currents and high sea states. This investigation was carried out to predict the behaviour of the two typesRead more
In 2010-2011 Cape Horn Engineering developed a robust procedure for coupling the mesoscale WRF weather model with a high resolution CFD flow solver (Star-CCM+). The aim of the project was to develop a tool capable of predicting, with a high degree of accuracy, the wind conditions over a reduced zone of complex topology, taking intoRead more
