Research paper (scientific journal) Single SIMULATION OF DAILY MAXIMUM WIND SPEED USING MEAN-REVERTING ORNSTEIN-UHLENBECK PROCESS Tetsuya KITAGAWA Journal of Japan Society of Civil Engineers, Ser. A1 (Structural Engineering & Earthquake Engineering (SE/EE)) Japan Society of Civil Engineers 73/ 3, 579-592 2017/11/20 A simple method to simulate time histories of daily maximum wind speed is presented, in which the mean-reverting Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process is incorporated. The data observed at a meteorological sta-tion in the past are analyzed to clarify the statistical nature of the daily maximum wind speed at the site, and to obtain the values for parameters in the method. Trials are conducted to investigate the character-istics of the method, and the time histories simulated for the daily maximum wind speed in the year of 2014 are compared with the observation data. It is shown that the simulated ones are mostly similar to the observed one whilst in some cases the simulated ones differ from the observed one in time domain as well as in statistics.
Research paper (scientific journal) Single A STUDY ON REVENUE PREDICTION FOR OUTDOOR EVENT PROJECT USING WEATHER AND DATE INDICES Tetsuya KITAGAWA PROCEEDINGS OF THE 24TH NATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON WIND ENGINEERING 49-54 2016/12/07 0918-8231 Many of company or human activities are exposed to weather risks, and specifically the success of outdoor event projects is dependent on weather condition. For hedging the risks, it needs to estimate the effect of weather on the revenue. In this study, the fluctuation of the daily visitor number of outdoor events is analyzed, and the relationship between a few weather elements and the visitor number is investigated. A simple formula for predicting the daily visitor number is derived from the result of the investigation. The formula is applied to simulate the daily revenue and the earning at risk of the outdoor events is estimated.
Research paper (scientific journal) Single AN EX-POST ANALYSIS ON WEATHER DERIVATIVE IN JAPAN FLORA 2000 Tetsuya KITAGAWA The 23rd National Symposium on Wind Engineering 19-24 2014 0918-8231 A weather derivative was utilized out of concern for unscheduled expenditures and losses in the international gardening and landscaping exhibition Japan flora 2000, in which the index was the number of days meeting with strong wind. In this study, the effect of strong wind on the decrease in the exhibition visitor number is investigated through the analysis for the correlation between the daily visitor numbers and the daily maximum wind speeds. The price of the weather derivative is estimated with the payout simulation using a theoretical formula substituted the wind speed data recorded in the past. The simulation result is compared with the contract condition of the weather derivative, and the validity of the contract deposit is discussed.
Research paper (scientific journal) Single WIND DERIVATIVE SIMULATION FOR RISK MANAGEMENT ON ADMISSION FEE PROFIT OF A LEISURE FACILITY PROCEEDINGS OF THE 22nd NATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON WIND ENGINEERING 31-36 2012/12/05 0918-8231 Numerous companies and organizations are exposed to weather risks, and their business profits are affected by various weather factors such as air temperature, rain/snow fall and sunshine duration. In this study, the relationship between the admission fee profit of a leisure facility and the wind speed is investigated. It is shown that in May the number of the visitors correlates with the monthly maximum wind speed, and that the visitor number decreased by strong winds can reduce the admission fee profit. A weather derivative using the monthly maximum wind speed as the index is designed to hedge the risk on the decrease in the profit. The payout with this wind derivative is simulated, and the effectiveness on the profit stabilization is discussed.
Research paper (scientific journal) Joint A supplementary method for expressway-tunnel ventilation using pressure fluctuation around running vehicle Tetsuya Kitagawa, Kazuhiro Gotoh Journal of Stuructural Engineering, JSCE 57A, 611-618 2011/03 This study proposes a method to assist the ventilation in expressway tunnels using air pressures generated around a vehicle running at high speed, in which the air can be exchanged between the inside and outside of a tunnel through a duct. A model of the time history of the vehicle-induced air-pressure is obtained from the results of field experiments. This model is applied to the boundary condition of the numerical simulation conducted to investigate the characteristics of the air flow in the duct, and to estimate the volume of the air intake from the tunnel outside to the inside.
