Pulsed wall jet simulation of a stationary thunderstorm downburst, Part A: Physical structure and flow field characterization
Mason, M. S., Letchford, C. W., & James, D. L. (2005) Pulsed wall jet simulation of a stationary thunderstorm downburst, Part A: Physical structure and flow field characterization. Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics, 93(7), pp. 557-580.
A pulsed wall jet has been used to simulate the gust front of a thunderstorm downburst. Flow visualization, wind speed and surface pressure measurements were obtained. The characteristics of the hypothesized ring vortex of a full-scale downburst were reproduced at a scale estimated to be 1:3000.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
