Dr. Unai Fernández
Unai Fernández is an assistant professor at the Nuclear Engineering and Fluid Mechanics Department in the University of the Basque Country, Vitoria (Spain).
He finished his doctoral thesis in 2013 and made significant contributions in the field of passive and active flow control devices to improve wind turbine rotor aerodynamic performance.
His dissertation was conducted under the guidance of Prof. Eduard Egusquiza (Polytechnic University of Catalonia) and Associate Prof. Clara M. Velte (Technical University of Denmark), and consists of research into how the physics of the wake downstream of the vortex generators (VG) can be reproduced in computational simulations.
The main results of his participation in research projects have been published in several articles (7) in International Journals (JCR) and presented in international Congresses (12) of the field.
