Abstract

The wind characteristics in thunderstorms, particularly downbursts, differ significantly from those of synoptic scale boundary layer winds. This paper describes work aimed at simulating the flow structure in a moving downburst and obtaining the transient pressure field on a cube immersed in such a flow. In Part A, data were presented for a stationary wall jet simulation of a downburst. This part presents the data from a moving downburst simulation and makes comparisons with the stationary wall jet simulation based on quasi-steady approaches. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
