The development of large scale wind farms that can compete with conventional energy resources presents significant challenges to today’s wind energy industry. A powerful solution to these daunting challenges can be offered by a synergistic consideration of the key design elements (turbine selection and placement) and the variations in the natural resource.(More)
Management of game ungulates alters population structure and habitat features, with potential effects on genetic structure. Here, we study 26 red deer (Cervus elaphus) populations in Spain. We used census data and habitat features as well as genetic information at 11 microsatellite markers from 717 individuals. We found that metapopulations presented a(More)
Several plausible extensions of the Standard Model predict the existence of high mass resonances that can be reconstructed (either fully or partially) in the ATLAS and CMS detectors using leptons, jets and missing transverse energy (/ ET ). We present the results of recent detailed studies of these searches performed by both collaborations, focusing on the(More)
We have analyzed long-term wind speed time series from five field sites up to a height of 300 m from the ground. Structure function-based scaling analysis has revealed that the scaling exponents in the mesoscale regime systematically depend on height. This anomalous behavior is likely caused by the buoyancy effects. In the framework of the extended(More)
An experimental study was conducted to examine the effect of surface roughness on the development of an adverse pressure gradient turbulent boundary layer. Hot-wire anemometry measurements were carried out using single and x-wire probes in the APG region of an open return type wind tunnel test section. The same experimental conditions (i.e. T∞, Uref, and(More)
We present a comparison of the flow characteristics in an idealized smooth trachea model and a second model which has a roughness simulating cartilaginous rings. We use refractive index-matched particle image velocimetry (PIV) to measure the velocity field in a two-generation model of the trachea and main bronchi. The flow rate has a trachea-based Reynolds(More)
Understanding how fluid flow interacts with micro-textured surfaces is crucial for a broad range of key biological processes and engineering applications including particle dispersion, pathogenic infections, and drag manipulation by surface topology. We use high-speed digital holographic microscopy (DHM) in combination with a correlation based de-noising(More)
