Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics

Composite material, Plane stress, Plasticity, Mechanics and Boundary value problem are his primary areas of study. His Composite material study frequently involves adjacent topics like Nucleation. His work deals with themes such as Viscoplasticity, Strain energy release rate, Kinematic hardening, Shear and Length scale, which intersect with Plane stress.

His study in Plasticity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Hardening, Constitutive equation, Dislocation creep, Dislocation and Slip. His studies examine the connections between Hardening and genetics, as well as such issues in Strain hardening exponent, with regards to Shear band, Crystal, Strain rate and Ductility. Alan Needleman interconnects Crack closure, Fracture mechanics, Cohesive zone model, Crack tip opening displacement and Linear elasticity in the investigation of issues within Mechanics.

His most cited work include:

  • Analysis of the cup-cone fracture in a round tensile bar (2286 citations)
  • Numerical simulations of fast crack growth in brittle solids (1783 citations)
  • A Continuum Model for Void Nucleation by Inclusion Debonding (1669 citations)

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

Alan Needleman focuses on Composite material, Mechanics, Plasticity, Plane stress and Constitutive equation. Composite material is closely attributed to Nucleation in his work. His Mechanics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Crack closure, Structural engineering, Fracture mechanics, Finite element method and Forensic engineering.

His Plasticity study incorporates themes from Slip, Hardening, Boundary value problem and Dislocation. His Plane stress study combines topics in areas such as Finite strain theory, Necking, Deformation, Characteristic length and Isotropy. His Constitutive equation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Critical value, Free surface and Brittleness.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Composite material (43.00%)
  • Mechanics (34.35%)
  • Plasticity (31.81%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2021)?

  • Composite material (43.00%)
  • Mechanics (34.35%)
  • Plasticity (31.81%)

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

Alan Needleman mostly deals with Composite material, Mechanics, Plasticity, Constitutive equation and Finite element method. His Mechanics research incorporates elements of Shear, Fracture mechanics, Forensic engineering and Dissipation. His research in Plasticity intersects with topics in Hardening, Strain rate, Linear elasticity and Boundary value problem.

In his research on the topic of Hardening, Strain hardening exponent and Inertia is strongly related with Necking. The Constitutive equation study which covers Creep that intersects with Porosity and Cubic crystal system. The concepts of his Finite element method study are interwoven with issues in Dynamic loading and Mathematical analysis.

Between 2008 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Ductile failure modeling (103 citations)
  • Some Issues in Cohesive Surface Modeling (74 citations)
  • Analysis of uniaxial compression of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes (68 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mathematical analysis

His primary scientific interests are in Composite material, Constitutive equation, Void, Finite element method and Mechanics. His study ties his expertise on Viscoplasticity together with the subject of Composite material. His Constitutive equation study combines topics in areas such as Stiffness and Free surface.

His studies in Void integrate themes in fields like Creep, Power law and Nucleation. The study incorporates disciplines such as Structural engineering, Fracture mechanics, Cohesive zone model and Forensic engineering in addition to Mechanics. His Plasticity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hardening and Crystallite.
