Alexander Smits spends much of his time researching Mechanics, Turbulence, Reynolds number, Boundary layer and Pipe flow. His work focuses on many connections between Mechanics and other disciplines, such as Thermodynamics, that overlap with his field of interest in Couette flow. His Turbulence study incorporates themes from Optics, Pressure gradient and Scaling.
His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Reynolds stress equation model, Pressure drop, Classical mechanics and Geometry. His Boundary layer research includes elements of Flow, Curvature and Mach number. His Pipe flow research includes themes of Von Kármán constant and Power law.
Alexander Smits mostly deals with Mechanics, Turbulence, Boundary layer, Reynolds number and Pipe flow. Many of his studies on Mechanics apply to Classical mechanics as well. The various areas that Alexander Smits examines in his Turbulence study include Curvature and Optics.
His research in Boundary layer intersects with topics in Hypersonic speed and Shock wave. His Reynolds number research incorporates themes from Geometry and Scaling. His Pipe flow research integrates issues from Plug flow, Open-channel flow and Fully developed.
His primary areas of investigation include Mechanics, Turbulence, Reynolds number, Pipe flow and Wake. His research on Mechanics often connects related areas such as Thrust. Alexander Smits is studying Flow separation, which is a component of Turbulence.
His work in Reynolds number tackles topics such as Scaling which are related to areas like Wavelength and Eddy. His study in Pipe flow is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Azimuth, Lagrangian coherent structures, Open-channel flow and Fully developed. His work in Boundary layer addresses subjects such as Hypersonic speed, which are connected to disciplines such as Mach number.
The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Mechanics, Reynolds number, Turbulence, Particle image velocimetry and Wake. His research integrates issues of Vertical axis wind turbine and Thrust in his study of Mechanics. His studies in Reynolds number integrate themes in fields like Geometry, Scaling, Boundary layer, Turbulence kinetic energy and Wind tunnel.
The various areas that Alexander Smits examines in his Boundary layer study include Hypersonic speed, Compressibility and Mach number.
