Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Mechanics

Mechanics, Particle deposition, Particle size, Heat transfer and Deposition are his primary areas of study. His Mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Geotechnical engineering, Borehole and Thermal. His research integrates issues of Turbulence and Airflow in his study of Particle deposition.

His work carried out in the field of Turbulence brings together such families of science as Settling and Flow. Alvin C.K. Lai focuses mostly in the field of Particle size, narrowing it down to topics relating to Aerosol and, in certain cases, Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations, Turbulence kinetic energy and Air quality index. His work focuses on many connections between Deposition and other disciplines, such as Composite material, that overlap with his field of interest in Volume.

His most cited work include:

  • Modeling Indoor Particle Deposition from Turbulent Flow onto Smooth Surfaces (443 citations)
  • Effects of room furnishings and air speed on particle deposition rates indoors (258 citations)
  • Particle deposition indoors: a review (210 citations)

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

Alvin C.K. Lai mainly investigates Mechanics, Particle deposition, Meteorology, Aerosol and Airflow. His Mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Settling, Deposition and Thermodynamics. The Particle deposition study combines topics in areas such as Classical mechanics, Duct, Deposition and Particle size.

His Deposition study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Flow and Air quality index. His studies in Meteorology integrate themes in fields like Computational fluid dynamics and Computer simulation. His Aerosol research focuses on Mineralogy and how it relates to Pipe flow.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (42.59%)
  • Particle deposition (27.78%)
  • Meteorology (18.52%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Staphylococcus epidermidis (8.33%)
  • Indoor air quality (12.96%)
  • Serratia marcescens (5.56%)

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

Alvin C.K. Lai focuses on Staphylococcus epidermidis, Indoor air quality, Serratia marcescens, Pseudomonas alcaligenes and Duct. His research in Indoor air quality intersects with topics in Nuclear engineering, Ventilation, Airflow and Indoor bioaerosol. His Duct research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Uv disinfection, Mechanics, Ultrafine particle and Particle deposition.

His work is dedicated to discovering how Mechanics, Ion are connected with Square duct and Flow and other disciplines. His Particle deposition study is concerned with the larger field of Composite material. His Ozone research includes themes of Environmental chemistry and Aerosol.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Experimental study of exposure to cooking emitted particles under single zone and two-zone environments (25 citations)
  • Building-group-level performance evaluations of net zero energy buildings with non-collaborative controls (24 citations)
  • Desorption of SVOCs from Heated Surfaces in the Form of Ultrafine Particles (23 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Mechanics

Alvin C.K. Lai spends much of his time researching Pseudomonas alcaligenes, Serratia marcescens, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Environmental engineering and Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation. Pseudomonas alcaligenes is connected with Micrococcus luteus and Chromatography in his research. A majority of his Micrococcus luteus research is a blend of other scientific areas, such as Relative humidity, Pressure drop and Ventilation.

He combines subjects such as Ultrafine particle and Stove with his study of Ventilation. His Environmental engineering research includes elements of Ion, Duct, Mechanics and Square duct. His Ultraviolet germicidal irradiation research integrates issues from Food science, Irradiance and Air changes per hour.
