Gust Velocity Field GeneratorsΒΆ

These generators are used to create a gust velocity field. GustVelocityField is the main class that should be parsed as the velocity_field_input to the desired aerodynamic solver.

The remaining classes are the specific gust profiles and parsed as gust_shape.


The typical input to the aerodynamic solver settings would therefore read similar to:

>>> aero_settings = {'<some_aero_settings>': '<some_aero_settings>',
>>>                  'velocity_field_generator': 'GustVelocityField',
>>>                  'velocity_field_input': {'u_inf': 1,
>>>                                           'gust_shape': '<desired_gust>',
>>>                                           'gust_parameters': '<gust_settings>'}}
