Abstract

To obtain models of the near-field wakes behind cylinders of the types used as support structures for wind turbines, wind tunnel tests were conducted in the Walter Beech Memorial Wind Tunnel of Wichita State University. The tests were surveys of wakes downstream of circular cylinders and of l2-sided cylinders. This Appendix contains the Wind Tunnel Run Log and the data obtained from the computer during the wind tunnel tests. There are two forms of print-out depending on the instrumentation being used--five-tube pressure probe and hot-wire anemometer.
