Jochem is on a distinguished road

I am doing siting studies for an urban environment. I've been abled to do this by the use off the motorBike tutorial. The problem is that I have to rotate my .stl file and mesh every time for a new wind direction. This is very time intensive.

I've read an example for Wind farm siting for complex terrain from Xabier Pedruelo Tapia. In his thesis he gives an example for applying a wind rose on an circular domain (see image in attachment). I've now changed my .stl and I'm trying to do the same thing. Some questions I have for the simulations :

What kind of wall function do I have to apply?

How can I apply the wind rose as input?

Can someone help me with these questions?
