Project Description


         This research project at the University of Las Palmas, entitled "Integration of new methodologies in simulation of wind fields, solar radiation and air quality " ,referring 604155032-55032-45-514, is part of the coordinated project: "Integration of new methodologies for environmental management " ,referring CTM2014-55014 - C3-1 -R ,funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness ,and FEDER through the 2014 call project R&D+i of the state program of research ,development and innovation geared to the challenges of society. Awarded for the period 2015-2017.


         This coordinated project aims to integrate new methodologies in the physical and mathematical models that have been developed previously between the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, the University of Salamanca and the University of Las Palmas. Environmental phenomena considered in this project are (a) the wind field, (b) solar radiation, (c) the dispersion of pollutants in the atmosphere. Advanced methodologies that are introduced in the models comprise isogeometric analysis wind field problems, adaptive techniques in space and time, efficient methods of solving systems of equations, global sensitivity analysis, estimation of parameters using evolutionary algorithms, reduced technical bases, "ensemble" methods to manage uncertainty, progress in the integration of local models to regional models (HARMONIE, CMAQ, etc.), improvements in the physical models that describe the problems and the computational cost using parallel computing techniques. In order to develop all the advances, new mesh generation techniques are required. In this sense, the developments made in previous projects will be put together with the ability to automatically generate urban meshes, higher-order meshes and T-mesh type. The main objective of the project is to develop and the subsequent legal registration of software tools for the prediction of the various physical phenomena and mesh generation for finite element approach or isogeometric analysis. To this end, we will work closely with the EPO, both for the validation of the models and their application in real cases, and the adequacy of the tools for practical use in the industry. The physical phenomena that are studied in this project have a great social and economic impact, and are part of the challenges set out in the project call. With the advances proposed, tools to help improve their planning and management are provided.
