Diego Ernesto Cárdenas Fuentes, Ph.D.

Research Areas:

  • Computational Mechanics
  • Composite Materials
  • Fluid Structure interaction
  • Thin Walled Beam

Diego E. Cardenas completed the B.S. degree in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering at Tecnológico de Monterrey in 2001. He received the M.S. degree “International Production Management” from The Technical University Hamburg-Harburg, Germany in 2005. In 2011 he obtained his Ph.D. degree in Engineering from Tecnológico de Monterrey.  He has been visiting researcher in several institutions and research centers as: Fraunhofer Institute of Technology, Clarkson University and Sapienza University of Rome.

Before joining Tecnológico de Monterrey, Diego E. Cardenas worked as design engineer at Prolec-GE's Center for Applied Technology. In 2012 he enrolled in the Mechatronics department at Tecnológico de Monterrey campus Mexico City as Researcher-Professor. He is currently member of the research group in Energy where he collaborates in projects related with wind energy.

The research of Diego Cardenas focuses on computational modeling of the fluid-structure interaction of wind turbine blades. For this purpose, he has developed reduced-order models which allow modeling three-dimensional curved beam-like structures made of composite materials.  Such models have the capability to predict and progress damage on the blade due to the loads when it interacts with the fluid. Diego Cardenas is member of the Mexican Research National System since 2012.
