Ganesh Vijayakumar

Postdoctoral Researcher-Mechanical Engineering

Ganesh.Vijayakumar@nrel.gov | 303-384-7118

Ganesh's expertise is in atmospheric boundary layers, wind turbine aerodynamics, computational fluid dynamics, and  turbulence modeling. At NREL, Ganesh's research focuses on developing the next generation of wind farm modeling tools by tightly coupling Nalu to FAST v8 for both actuator line methods and blade-resolved simulations and analyzing the effect of high-order discretizations in computational fluid dynamics on wake prediction.
