    • Aeromechanical evaluation of large HAWT’s blades 

      Lain Beatove, Santiago; López Castrillon, Yuri Ulianov; Quintero Arboleda, Brian (researchgate, 2010-02)
      Este artículo presenta la evaluación aeromecánica de una pala (longitud, 50 m) de aerogeneradores de eje horizontal (HAWT). El módulo aerodinámico combina el enfoque de la teoría de la superficie de elevación no lineal ...
    • Biomass logistics and environmental impact modelling for sugar-ethanol production 

      Lozano Moreno, Jairo Alexander; Maréchal, François (Elsevier, 2019-02-10)
      The goal of this paper is to evaluate the supply of sugarcane to mills and also the supply of green harvesting residues to second-generation ethanol plants under three different strategies: chopping, baling and integral ...
    • Computational fluid dynamics modelling and simulation of an inclined horizontal axis hydrokinetic turbine 

      Lain Beatove, Santiago; López Mejía, Omar Darío; Contreras Montoya, Leidy Tatiana (MDPI, 2018-11-14)
      In this contribution, unsteady three-dimensional numerical simulations of the water flow through a horizontal axis hydrokinetic turbine (HAHT) of the Garman type are performed. This study was conducted in order to estimate ...
