Prof Norberto Fueyo is since 2008 a full professor in Fluid Mechanics at the School of Engineering and Architecture, University of Zaragoza. After his MSc in Industrial Engineering (1987), he was a Research Assistant at Imperial College, University of London. In 1990 he completed at Imperial College his PhD thesis, in the field of Computational Fluid Dynamics, under the supervision of Prof D Brian Spalding. For the next three years he worked for CHAM, London, a company developing one of the (then) main Computational Fluid Dynamics codes, PHOENICS.
In 1993, he joined LITEC, a joint research centre of the University of Zaragoza and CSIC. Since 1996 he is teaching staff at Fluid Mechanics Section of the University of Zaragoza. His research lines are Computational Fluid Dynamics (and, in particular, numerical methods, combustion and reactive flows, and multiphase flows), renewable energies and energy systems. He has been the principal researcher in six project with national funding, and has participated in ten European projects. He has been the coordinator of four of those, two of them (Flowgrid and NICECOAL) at the University of Zaragoza.
He has participated, usually as principal researcher, in more than 55 research contracts with companies and organisations. Among the collaborating institutions are: Alcoa, Asian Development Bank, BSH Electrodomésticos España SA, Celulosa Fabril SA, CEMEX España SA, CIEMAT, ENDESA, Foster Wheeler, CIUDEN, Gas Natural sdg, Gobierno de la República del Salvador, Iberdrola, Ikerlan, Industrias Jiménez SA, Ministerio de Defensa, Ringo Válvulas, SEDIGAS, UNESA, Unión Fenosa, and Valeo Térmico.
