Abstract:

A simulated atmospheric boundary-layer flow over a 115,000 scale model of the Subic Bay Basin, Philippines, was studied in the environmental wind tunnel of the Fluid Dynamics and Diffusion Laboratory, Colorado State University. Surface flow patterns were obtained by visualization with smoke and surface oil films. Mean wind speed isotachs and turbulence intensity contour lines were obtained at four elevations of 70, 150, 195 and 275 ft 21.3, 45.7, 59.5 and 83.7 m for wind from the south 180 deg T through west 270 deg T at increments of 15 deg. Data obtained also include slides and motion pictures of the flow patterns. Author
