Prof. Carlos Martel
Professor of Aerospace Engineering at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid
Carlos Martel is Professor of Aerospace Engineering at Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (Spain) since 2009, where he also completed his PhD in Applied Mathematics in 1995. His research activity started in the field of nonlinear dynamics and pattern formation applied to basic fluid mechanics problems (convection, water waves, boundary layer). In the past 20 years he has been involved in the study of different aeroelastic problems in turbomachinery in close collaboration with the industry, mostly related to the analysis and description of mistuning effects in the flutter and forced response vibration of rotors. He has authored more than 70 scientific and technical papers on peer reviewed journals, conferences, and technical reports.
