What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Ceramic

His primary scientific interests are in Composite material, Fracture mechanics, Toughness, Ceramic and Brittleness. In his study, Substrate is strongly linked to Thin film, which falls under the umbrella field of Composite material. His studies in Fracture mechanics integrate themes in fields like Indentation and Fracture.

The Toughness study combines topics in areas such as Cubic zirconia and Diffusionless transformation. His Ceramic study incorporates themes from Composite number and Microstructure. In his research, Fiber pull-out is intimately related to Fiber, which falls under the overarching field of Stress.

His most cited work include:

  • Metal Foams: A Design Guide (2190 citations)
  • Spontaneous formation of ordered structures in thin films of metals supported on an elastomeric polymer (1760 citations)
  • Mechanisms controlling the durability of thermal barrier coatings (1714 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Composite material, Ceramic, Fracture mechanics, Toughness and Stress. His study in Residual stress, Ceramic matrix composite, Brittleness, Fracture toughness and Composite number is carried out as part of his studies in Composite material. His Residual stress research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Thermal expansion and Thin film.

His Ceramic research incorporates elements of Fiber, Microstructure and Plasticity. His research in Fracture mechanics intersects with topics in Cracking, Fracture and Forensic engineering. His research integrates issues of Delamination, Strain energy release rate and Thermal barrier coating in his study of Toughness.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Composite material (69.13%)
  • Ceramic (19.94%)
  • Fracture mechanics (18.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2006-2021)?

  • Composite material (69.13%)
  • Structural engineering (9.65%)
  • Mechanics (7.07%)

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

His main research concerns Composite material, Structural engineering, Mechanics, Finite element method and Thermal barrier coating. All of his Composite material and Delamination, Plasticity, Stress, Ceramic and Toughness investigations are sub-components of the entire Composite material study. Anthony G. Evans has researched Stress in several fields, including Ultimate tensile strength, Metallurgy, Creep, Ceramic matrix composite and Substrate.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Quasistatic process, Indentation, Material properties and Microstructure in addition to Ceramic. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Toughness, concentrating on Fracture toughness and intersecting with Intermetallic. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Residual stress, Yttria-stabilized zirconia and Mineralogy.

Between 2006 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The influence of oxides on the performance of advanced gas turbines (329 citations)
  • The response of metallic sandwich panels to water blast (183 citations)
  • The mechanics of coating delamination in thermal gradients (176 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering

Anthony G. Evans mainly investigates Composite material, Structural engineering, Mechanics, Sandwich-structured composite and Stiffness. His Composite material research includes themes of Thermal and Constitutive equation. His Structural engineering study deals with Impulse intersecting with Vibration, Dissipation and Finite element method.

His Mechanics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Granular material and Kinetic energy. His study on Sandwich-structured composite also encompasses disciplines like

  • Truss most often made with reference to Honeycomb structure,
  • Plastic bending, Tearing and Deflection most often made with reference to Hydroelasticity. His research investigates the connection between Stiffness and topics such as Thermal expansion that intersect with problems in Lattice and Titanium alloy.
