Eduardo Fernández Tarrazo holds a 6 year degree in Aeronautical Engineering (1989) from the School of Aeronautics in Madrid.

After his graduation, he worked for Pratt & Whitney (East Hartford, Connecticut) as part of Iberia Airlines engineer training program. Back in Spain, he worked as Research Engineer at the National Establishment for Aerospace Research (INTA) until 2007, both before and after completing his PhD.

He obtained a PhD in Aeronautical Engineering, under the supervision of Prof. Amable Liñán, in 2003. His dissertation dealt with non-premixed flame fronts propagation (diffusion flame anchoring near an injector and diffusion flame propagation over solid fuels).

Research Interests

His main interests are in the field of numerical modelling of laminar premixed flame propagation and non-premixed flame edge propagation (triple flames propagation).

In the last years he has become more concerned about the use of biofuels in combustion technology, to reduce greenhouse gases emissions.

He has collaborated with Professor Liñán, with Proffesor Williams and with Professor Sánchez on fundamental aspects of laminar flame theory.

Teaching Activities

From 2000 to 2005 he was teaching Calculus as part time lecturer at the School of Aeronautics in Madrid. Over the last few years, since he joined the fluid mechanics group in 2005, Eduardo has taught undergraduate courses of fluid mechanics and graduate courses on fires and on introductory airplane aerodynamics.

He was invited to give a series of lectures on Combustion at the Far Eastern Federal University (Vladivostok 2015)
