      The flow around the blade of a horizontal axis wind turbine wind tunnel model, operating at its optimal tip speed ratio in axial flow, has been investigated by means of stereoscopic particle image velocimetry (SPIV). The ...
    • Evaluation of the lifting line vortex model approximation for estimating the local blade flow fields in horizontal-axis wind turbines 

      Sant, T.; Campo Gatell, Vanessa del; Micallef, D.; Ferreira, C. Simao (2016-03-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Lifting line vortex models have been widely used to predict flow fields around wind turbine rotors. Such models are known to be deficient in modelling flow fields close to the blades due to the assumption that blade vorticity ...
    • Experimenal study of the aerodynamics of a horizontal axis wind turbine 

      Campo Gatell, Vanessa del (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2013-03-22)
      Doctoral thesis
      Open Access
      One of the challenges of the wind energy community today is to improve the existing background on the aerodynamic phenomena of a Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine (HAWT), the prediction of the wind speed distribution on the ...
    • Preliminary study on fluidic actuators. Design modifications 

      Campo Sud, David del; Bergadà Granyó, Josep Maria; Campo Gatell, Vanessa del (2015)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      As fluidic actuators have the advantage of lacking moving parts, their use in real applications brings high reliability. This is why, once having overcome their drawbacks, which means being able to provide the appropriate ...
    • Research on fluidic amplifiers dimensional modifications via computer simulation (CFD) 

      Baghaei, Masoud; Bergadà Granyó, Josep Maria; Campo Sud, David del; Campo Gatell, Vanessa del (Istanbul Tecnical University, 2016)
      Conference report
      Restricted access - publisher's policy
      When studying active flow control applications, it is already stated that activating the boundary layer via using periodic flow produces better performance than when employing steady blowing or sucking. This is why studying ...
