Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Heat transfer
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Composite material

Aiwu Fan mostly deals with Combustor, Micro-combustion, Analytical chemistry, Laminar flame speed and Heat transfer. His Combustor research incorporates themes from Flow, Bluff, Composite material and Work. While the research belongs to areas of Micro-combustion, Aiwu Fan spends his time largely on the problem of Mesoscale meteorology, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Transition point, Flashback and Heat exchanger.

In his papers, Aiwu Fan integrates diverse fields, such as Analytical chemistry and Leakage. His Laminar flame speed study is concerned with the larger field of Premixed flame. His Heat transfer study combines topics in areas such as Nusselt number, Pressure drop and Entropy.

His most cited work include:

  • A numerical study on heat transfer and friction factor characteristics of laminar flow in a circular tube fitted with center-cleared twisted tape (202 citations)
  • Experimental and numerical investigation on combustion characteristics of premixed hydrogen/air flame in a micro-combustor with a bluff body (129 citations)
  • Experimental investigation and numerical analysis on flame stabilization of CH4/air mixture in a mesoscale channel with wall cavities (95 citations)

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

Aiwu Fan mainly focuses on Combustor, Analytical chemistry, Laminar flame speed, Premixed flame and Microchannel. His work on Micro-combustion as part of his general Combustor study is frequently connected to Planar, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Analytical chemistry research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Flow velocity, Adiabatic flame temperature, Flame structure and Temperature gradient.

His research in Laminar flame speed intersects with topics in Flow, Transition point and Mesoscale meteorology. The Flow study combines topics in areas such as Ignition system and Heat transfer. His Microchannel study incorporates themes from Concentration dependence and Reaction zone.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Combustor (51.22%)
  • Analytical chemistry (34.15%)
  • Laminar flame speed (30.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Combustor (51.22%)
  • Inlet (13.41%)
  • Ignition system (9.76%)

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

His primary areas of study are Combustor, Inlet, Ignition system, Mixing and Work. His Combustor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Composite material and Analytical chemistry. His Composite material study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Turbulence, Micro-combustion and Flow channel.

His Ignition system research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Syngas, Flow, Instability and Extinction. His research in Flow focuses on subjects like Autoignition temperature, which are connected to Reaction rate. His studies in Work integrate themes in fields like Thermal conductivity, Thermal and Radiant energy.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effect of oxygen enrichment on combustion efficiency of lean H2/N2/O2 flames in a micro cavity-combustor (36 citations)
  • Comparison of combustion efficiency between micro combustors with single- and double-layered walls: A numerical study (34 citations)
  • Experimental investigation on non-premixed CH4/air combustion in a novel miniature Swiss-roll combustor (31 citations)

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

  • Mechanical engineering
  • Heat transfer
  • Composite material

His primary areas of investigation include Combustor, Inlet, Ignition system, Quenching and Planar. The study incorporates disciplines such as Quartz, Volumetric flow rate, Heat losses and Analytical chemistry in addition to Combustor. His Volumetric flow rate research integrates issues from Nuclear engineering, Exhaust gas, Flame structure and Flash.

His Analytical chemistry research includes themes of Limiting oxygen concentration and Oxygen enrichment. Aiwu Fan has researched Ignition system in several fields, including Platinum, Instability and Extinction. The concepts of his Quenching study are interwoven with issues in Intensity and Catalytic combustion.
