Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mathematical analysis

Mechanics, Bubble, Classical mechanics, Thermodynamics and Optics are her primary areas of study. Her Mechanics study incorporates themes from Wetting, Curvature and Scaling. While the research belongs to areas of Wetting, Andrea Prosperetti spends her time largely on the problem of Leidenfrost effect, intersecting her research to questions surrounding Composite material.

Her Bubble research includes elements of Acoustics, Cavitation, Inertial frame of reference, Nucleation and Radius. Her work carried out in the field of Classical mechanics brings together such families of science as Gas bubble, Two-phase flow and Reynolds number. She has included themes like Shock wave, Drop and Supersonic speed in her Optics study.

Her most cited work include:

  • Bubble Dynamics and Cavitation (1346 citations)
  • Linear pressure waves in bubbly liquids: Comparison between theory and experiments (524 citations)
  • Computational Methods for Multiphase Flow (512 citations)

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

Her main research concerns Mechanics, Bubble, Classical mechanics, Thermodynamics and Acoustics. Her Mechanics study focuses mostly on Two-phase flow, Reynolds number, Turbulence, Heat transfer and Multiphase flow. Her research on Bubble also deals with topics like

  • Bubble (40.42%)
  • Drop (6.46%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Mechanics, Bubble, Drop, Nucleation and Thermodynamics. Her work on Liquid bubble as part of general Bubble study is frequently linked to Phase, bridging the gap between disciplines. Her Nucleation research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Chemical physics and Gas bubble.

Her study explores the link between Thermodynamics and topics such as Dissolution that cross with problems in Ternary operation. Her Heat transfer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Boussinesq approximation and Classical mechanics. Her Leidenfrost effect study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Wetting, Boiling and Isothermal process.

Between 2013 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Dynamic Leidenfrost Effect: Relevant Time and Length Scales. (90 citations)
  • Dynamic Leidenfrost Effect: Relevant Time and Length Scales. (90 citations)
  • The Leidenfrost temperature increase for impacting droplets on carbon-nanofiber surfaces. (53 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Mathematical analysis

Her primary scientific interests are in Mechanics, Bubble, Thermodynamics, Heat transfer and Leidenfrost effect. Her research integrates issues of Gravity, Drop, Classical mechanics and Speed of sound in her study of Mechanics. The concepts of her Classical mechanics study are interwoven with issues in Duct, Numerical analysis, Computational fluid dynamics and Boundary value problem.

The Bubble study combines topics in areas such as Plasmon, Convection, Growth rate, Light source and Shrinkage. Her studies deal with areas such as Radius, Work and Optics as well as Convection. Her Leidenfrost effect research includes themes of Wetting, Boiling and Isothermal process.
