Doctoral Candidate

Feiyu Geng


His research focuses on numerical modeling of dynamic stall phenomenon of turbine blades and the fatigue behavior of materials. He is currently working on the determination of unsteady loads on turbine blades at dynamic stall regime using computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations, the computation of fatigue-driven fracture using cohesive zone model (CZM), and the coupling of these two aspects in predicting the fatigue endurance of a vertical-axis wind turbine operating in the built environment. The geared transmission system modeling, the measurement and prediction of its vibration noise and the optimization strategy of its dynamic performance were his concern during the Master study. He has a few scientific publications as listed, and he also acts as a reviewer for 2 international journals (Journal of Wind Engineering & Industrial Aerodynamics, Journal of Sandwich Structures & Materials).  

Meaningful modeling and simulation cannot be obtained without quantitatively assessing verification and validation.”


Feiyu Geng (born on May 16, 1989) is a doctoral candidate at the Department of the Built Environment at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the Netherlands. He studied Mechanical and Electronic Engineering at Inner Mongolia University of Technology, China. In 2014, he graduated from Chongqing University as Master in Mechanical Engineering on a thesis in dynamic performance evaluation and radiated noise control of gearboxes under supervision of Prof. Tengjiao Lin. In September 2014, he was enrolled as a doctoral candidate with the project “Improvement of efficiency and fatigue life of vertical-axis wind turbines”. This research is being undertaken under supervision of Prof. Akke Suiker (promotor) at the group of Applied Mechanics and Design and Prof. Bert Blocken (co-promotor) at the group of Building Physics.
