2001 - Fellow of American Physical Society (APS) Citation For his substantial and enduring original contributions to turbulence dynamics, turbulent mixing, and turbulent combustion, and for his insightful technical leadership among peers and students

- Quantum mechanics
- Mechanics
- Thermodynamics

His main research concerns Turbulence, Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Statistical physics and Scalar. His study of Reynolds number is a part of Turbulence. His Mechanics research integrates issues from Fractal dimension, Mixing and Classical mechanics.

Alan R. Kerstein has included themes like Mineralogy and Coal in his Thermodynamics study. The Statistical physics study combines topics in areas such as Phase transition, Critical exponent, Continuum percolation theory, Universality and Randomness. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Scalar field, Shear flow, Probability density function and Vorticity.

- Alignment of vorticity and scalar gradient with strain rate in simulated Navier-Stokes turbulence (689 citations)
- Chemical model of coal devolatilization using percolation lattice statistics (329 citations)
- Field equation for interface propagation in an unsteady homogeneous flow field. (318 citations)

Alan R. Kerstein mainly focuses on Turbulence, Mechanics, Statistical physics, Thermodynamics and Combustion. Alan R. Kerstein has researched Turbulence in several fields, including Scalar, Classical mechanics and Advection. His research integrates issues of Scalar field, Eddy diffusion, Probability density function and Turbulent diffusion in his study of Scalar.

His Mechanics study frequently draws connections between adjacent fields such as Mixing. The study incorporates disciplines such as Flow, Stochastic modelling, Stochastic process, Fluid dynamics and Scaling in addition to Statistical physics. Alan R. Kerstein works mostly in the field of Thermodynamics, limiting it down to topics relating to Coal and, in certain cases, Mineralogy, as a part of the same area of interest.

- Turbulence (70.48%)
- Mechanics (55.51%)
- Reynolds number (14.10%)

Turbulence, Mechanics, Reynolds number, Jet and Combustion are his primary areas of study. Alan R. Kerstein interconnects Stochastic modelling, Statistical physics, Breakup and Classical mechanics in the investigation of issues within Turbulence. His Statistical physics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Flow and Range.

His Classical mechanics research incorporates elements of Initial value problem and Mathematical analysis. His work deals with themes such as Multiphase flow, Fractal dimension, Fractal, Impulse and Premixed flame, which intersect with Reynolds number. His study in Jet is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Molecular diffusion, Turbulent diffusion and Orders of magnitude.

- A petascale direct numerical simulation study of the modelling of flame wrinkling for large-eddy simulations in intense turbulence (122 citations)
- Advances and challenges in modeling high-speed turbulent combustion in propulsion systems (48 citations)
- On the fractal characteristics of low Damköhler number flames (47 citations)

Alan R. Kerstein focuses on Turbulence, Mechanics, Statistical physics, Jet and Reynolds number. His Turbulence study combines topics in areas such as Computer simulation, Stochastic modelling and Breakup. His studies in Mechanics integrate themes in fields like Meteorology, Classical mechanics and Thermodynamics.

His research investigates the link between Statistical physics and topics such as K-epsilon turbulence model that cross with problems in Open-channel flow, Scaling and Turbulent mixing. Alan R. Kerstein works mostly in the field of Scaling, limiting it down to topics relating to Scalar and, in certain cases, Advection. In his research, Theoretical physics, Laminar flow, Wavenumber, Kolmogorov microscales and Reynolds stress is intimately related to Premixed flame, which falls under the overarching field of Reynolds number.
