Horia Hangan in Windeee tunnel

Professor Hangan’s research is in the simulation and impact of high intensity winds (downbursts and tornados), wind energy (sitting in complex terrain, wind turbine blade aerodynamics) and wind environmental impacts (atmospheric pollution-dispersion, particulate transport). He authored more than 200 journal and conference publications, acts as reviewer and is part of the Editorial Board of several international journals such as Journal of Fluid Mechanics, AIAA Journal, ASME Journal of Fluids Engineering, ASME Journal of Solar (and Wind) Energy, Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics. You can find out more about his work at the WindEEE Research Insitute.
