Ducted Wind Turbines (DWTs) are used for energy harvesting in urban areas where the flow is non-uniform in comparison to the free-field because of the presence of buildings or other surface discontinuities. For this reason, the aerodynamic performance and far-field noise of DWTs in yawed inflow conditions must be characterized. Both the aerodynamic and the acoustic fields are dependent on the geometry of the duct. In this study, the effect of the duct geometry is analysed with high fidelity numerical simulations carried out with the lattice-Boltzmann method.
