INPUT PARAMETERS WIND STUDIES
e use the wind data as our data input for the parametric model by setting a range of the wind speed at each direction across the year. These results would be
16 Wind Directions Over the Entire Year
In reference to the average weather statistic of Copenhagen, Denmark, the wind speeds are varying from 4mph to 21mph and rarely exceeding 30mph.Throughout the year, winter would experience the highest average wind speed of 14mph, at which time the average daily maximum wind speed is 21mph. In contrast, the lowest average wind speed would be occur during the summer period, which is around 10mph, at which time the average daily maximum wind speed is 15mph. Apart from seasons, the strongest wind mostly comes from west (24%) and the least is from north-west and north-east (7%). From spent most from

These information are very useful for us not only as the input parameters, but also enable us to consider the positioning of our design according to the wind direction. Generally, the threshold of a typical wind generator is around 10mph. The average wind speed of Copenhagen along the year has the minimum value of 10mph, which indicates that it manages to generate wind energy consistently throughout the year. The only consideration is how much electrical energy could be generated by the generator. Hence, since our ideal sculpture would extend in horizontal way, we thus have to create a larger dynamic surface that could generate more energy since the wind speed is lower as it is nearer to the ground.
