Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

In this paper, the applicability of offshore wind turbines in the North Aegean Region is discussed. Wind data for the region has been obtained from two meteorological stations located at Bozcaada and Gokceada southwest of Canakkale. Based on an hourly time series covering twenty years, seasonal variations and availability of wind velocity have been assessed. To evaluate the wind statistics, Weibull distribution has been applied. It has been found out that the wind power in Bozcaada is much higher than Gokceada, indicating that its perimeter may be a suitable region for the deployment of offshore wind farms.
