Abstract:

A mathematical procedure is suggested which helps explain many results observed in power spectral density studies of atmospheric turbulence phenomena. On the basis of empirical evidence, random processes associated with gust velocitie are assumed to have continuous autocorrelation functions of a simple or slightly modified damped exponential-cosine form. Consequences of this assumption are explored. A mechanization is developed to generate on an analog computer various input gust velocity power spectra. Significant engineering results can thus be obtained on the expected operation of existing or proposed physical systems. Author
