Abstract:

Wind tunnel model tests were carried out to measure the wind interference created by the Buzzards Bay Entrance Light Tower in the atmospheric boundary layer. Tunnel measurements of wind profile were carried out at certain positions in the vicinity of the tower for several wind directions. The results indicate that at a distance of 50 feet from the tower the wind velocity profile may change about six percent, and larger changes are observed in certain special cases. Author
