Abstract

Wind multipliers are factors that transform regional wind speeds to local wind speeds considering local effects of direction, terrain, shielding and topographic influences. In order to assess the local wind hazard (spatial significance in the order 10's of metres), wind multipliers need to be computed, so that the regional wind speeds (order 10 to 100's of kilometres) can be factored to provide local wind speeds. These local wind speeds are critical to the wind-related activities including hazard and risk assessment. Activities also include agricultural growth and moisture demand applications along with energy-related applications such as wind farm developments. This document describes background information relating to wind multipliers and focuses on the development of a wind multiplier computation methodology. The Appendix provides an examples of the wind multiplier computation methodology to wind hazard and wind risk assessment.
