Abstract: The fundamental physics of HAWT aerodynamics in yaw is reviewed with reference to some of the latest scientific research covering both measurements and numerical modelling. The purpose of this chapter is to enable a concise overview of this important subject in rotor aerodynamics. This will provide the student, researcher or industry professional a quick reference. Detailed references are included for those who need to delve deeper into the subject. The chapter is also restricted to the aerodynamics of single rotors and their wake characteristics. Far wake and wind turbine to turbine effects experienced in wind farms are excluded from this review. Finally, a future outlook is provided in order to inspire further research in yawed aerodynamics.
