    The Bolund experiment is a study of the flow over Bolund, a small hill located near Risø DTU. In the present work, the flow over the Bolund hill has been computed using the EllipSys3D Navier-Stokes solver. The aim of this work is to identify the flow conditions at the hill in order to prepare the upcoming measurement campaign. The simulation results are used for estimating rational positions of measuring masts and instrumentation. A total of ten measuring masts are proposed consisting of two 16 m masts, six 9 m masts and two 5 m masts. The masts are instrumented with 12 cup anemometers for mean wind measurements and 21 sonics for 3-component turbulence measurements
