Difference between steady and uniform wind

Dear @Jason.Jonkman,

Hope you are doing well. I have a basic question :no_mouth:
Up to now, i did not get the difference between steady and uniform wind speed. (What i know is that wind speed can change with height according to some laws and i know also that turbsim generates stochastic wind field that changes with time and space (z and y directions))

Best Regards,


Dear @Riad.Elhamoud,

In InflowWind, by “turbulence”, we mean that the flow varies both in space and time. By “uniform”, we mean spatially coherent (perhaps with a shear profile) and time varying. By “steady” we mean both spatially coherent (perhaps with shear profile) and time invariant.

Best regards,
