The fluctuating wind power spectrum (FWPS) in given specifications could only represent the second-order probabilistic characteristic, which indicates that it is not capable of fully expressing the stochastic wind field. Estimation and modeling of the fluctuating wind amplitude spectrum (FWAS) as well as the fluctuating wind phase spectrum (FWPhS) by using measured wind velocity data can make up for the deficiencies mentioned above. A high-resolution nonparametric spectral estimation

An empirical expression (eFWAS) is introduced by dimensional analysis to model the random FWAS, and its specific Davenport form is proposed according to field measured data. The parameters of the Davenport eFWAS model are estimated by using the above measured FWAS, and three specific applications of this model are put forward when different known conditions are met. Compared with the measured FWAS, the stochastic Davenport eFWAS model proposed in this paper can accurately describe the statistical properties of the local wind field and improve the modeling accuracy of the FWAS, which is important in antiwind structural design and safety assessment.
