Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Turbulence
  • Fluid dynamics

His main research concerns Mechanics, Turbulence, Planetary boundary layer, Meteorology and Large eddy simulation. His studies deal with areas such as Wind speed and Classical mechanics as well as Mechanics. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Wake, Optics and Dissipation.

His study looks at the relationship between Planetary boundary layer and topics such as Surface layer, which overlap with Anemometer, Heat transfer and Heat flux. His studies in Meteorology integrate themes in fields like Turbine and Wind power. His work deals with themes such as Turbulence modeling, Atmospheric sciences and Prandtl number, which intersect with Large eddy simulation.

His most cited work include:

  • A scale-dependent dynamic model for large-eddy simulation: application to a neutral atmospheric boundary layer (458 citations)
  • Large-Eddy Simulation of Wind-Turbine Wakes: Evaluation of Turbine Parametrisations (355 citations)
  • Large-eddy simulation of atmospheric boundary layer flow through wind turbines and wind farms (306 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Fernando Porté-Agel mainly focuses on Mechanics, Turbulence, Planetary boundary layer, Large eddy simulation and Meteorology. Mechanics is often connected to Turbine in his work. His research integrates issues of Scale model, Statistical physics, Flow and Dissipation in his study of Turbulence.

Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Atmospheric sciences under Planetary boundary layer, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Atmosphere. His Large eddy simulation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Classical mechanics, Geometry, Boundary value problem and Atmospheric instability. He focuses mostly in the field of Meteorology, narrowing it down to topics relating to Wind power and, in certain cases, Wind speed.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (47.46%)
  • Turbulence (42.39%)
  • Planetary boundary layer (38.21%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Wake (25.37%)
  • Turbine (25.37%)
  • Meteorology (32.54%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Fernando Porté-Agel mainly investigates Wake, Turbine, Meteorology, Wind power and Turbulence. His Wake research is classified as research in Mechanics. His work carried out in the field of Turbine brings together such families of science as Marine engineering, Power, Inflow and Wind tunnel.

His Wind profile power law, Wind shear and Mesoscale meteorology study, which is part of a larger body of work in Meteorology, is frequently linked to Terrain and Wind power forecasting, bridging the gap between disciplines. His research on Wind power also deals with topics like

  • Planetary boundary layer that intertwine with fields like Atmospheric sciences,
  • Wind speed that intertwine with fields like Lidar. Fernando Porté-Agel studies Turbulence, namely Large eddy simulation.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Experimental and theoretical study of wind turbine wakes in yawed conditions (170 citations)
  • Wind-Turbine and Wind-Farm Flows: A Review (88 citations)
  • Analytical Modeling of Wind Farms: A New Approach for Power Prediction (65 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Mechanics
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Geometry

His primary areas of study are Wake, Turbine, Mechanics, Wind power and Turbulence. His Wake research incorporates themes from Meteorology, Deflection, Turbulence kinetic energy and Rotor. His Turbine research incorporates elements of Power, Rotational symmetry, Marine engineering, Inflow and Wind tunnel.

His work on Boundary layer, Large eddy simulation and Pressure gradient as part of general Mechanics research is frequently linked to Momentum, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. His research in Wind power intersects with topics in Planetary boundary layer and Transverse plane. Fernando Porté-Agel works mostly in the field of Turbulence, limiting it down to concerns involving Flow and, occasionally, Renewable energy.
