...R.L. Durán; J.F. Hinojosa; P. Sosa-Flores A computational fluid dynamics study about the aerodynamic loads over a heliostat due to an atmospheric boundary layer flow using a modified k–ɛ turbulence model is presented. A new formulation is used, in which the model quantities vary with the velocity...
