Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Mechanics

His primary areas of study are Thermodynamics, Heat transfer, Mechanics, Constructal law and Natural convection. His Heat transfer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Film temperature, Heat exchanger, Exergy and Porous medium. His studies in Exergy integrate themes in fields like Mechanical engineering and Mathematical optimization.

His Constructal law research integrates issues from Flow, Geometry, Electronics cooling, Fluid dynamics and Tree network. Adrian Bejan has researched Natural convection in several fields, including Lewis number, Enclosure and Buoyancy. Adrian Bejan interconnects Combined forced and natural convection, Bejan number and Entropy in the investigation of issues within Convective heat transfer.

His most cited work include:

  • Heat transfer (10470 citations)
  • Convection in Porous Media (4804 citations)
  • Convection heat transfer (3481 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His scientific interests lie mostly in Mechanics, Heat transfer, Thermodynamics, Constructal law and Natural convection. His research related to Convection, Forced convection, Flow, Fluid dynamics and Laminar flow might be considered part of Mechanics. His Heat transfer study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Mechanical engineering, Heat exchanger, Thermal conduction and Porous medium.

His study in Exergy, Heat flux, Boundary layer, Convective heat transfer and Volume falls within the category of Thermodynamics. His Constructal law research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Flow, Geometry, Topology, Tree structure and Thermal resistance. His Natural convection research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Nusselt number and Enclosure.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (41.78%)
  • Heat transfer (38.41%)
  • Thermodynamics (35.44%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Constructal law (34.37%)
  • Mechanics (41.78%)
  • Heat transfer (38.41%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Constructal law, Mechanics, Heat transfer, Thermodynamics and Flow. The concepts of his Constructal law study are interwoven with issues in Flow, Structural engineering, Statistical physics and Physical law. His studies deal with areas such as Porous medium and Energy storage as well as Mechanics.

His research integrates issues of Mechanical engineering, Heat exchanger, Work and Fluid dynamics in his study of Heat transfer. His work deals with themes such as Convection, Aspect ratio, Volumetric flow rate, Tube and Mass flow, which intersect with Flow. As a part of the same scientific study, he usually deals with the Convection, concentrating on Thermal conduction and frequently concerns with Geometry.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Entropy Generation Minimization (440 citations)
  • The Physics of Life: The Evolution of Everything (92 citations)
  • Constructal Law: Optimization as Design Evolution (69 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Geometry

Adrian Bejan mainly focuses on Constructal law, Mechanics, Heat transfer, Thermodynamics and Energy storage. His study in Constructal law is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Theoretical physics, Second law of thermodynamics, Phenomenon and Statistical physics. His Mechanics study combines topics in areas such as von Mises yield criterion and Thermal.

Adrian Bejan studies Heat transfer, namely Plate heat exchanger. His work on Volume as part of general Thermodynamics research is frequently linked to Field, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Energy storage research also works with subjects such as

  • Phase-change material which intersects with area such as Natural convection, Cylinder, Spiral and Coaxial,
  • Thermal energy storage which intersects with area such as Fluid dynamics,
  • Enclosure that intertwine with fields like Perpendicular, Thermal diffusivity and Consolidation.
