  • Finite element method (34.10%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2008-2021)?

  • Composite material (58.06%)
  • Finite element method (34.10%)
  • Structural engineering (39.63%)

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

Composite material, Finite element method, Structural engineering, Composite number and Micromechanics are her primary areas of study. Her Composite material research focuses on Stiffness, Delamination, Epoxy, Ceramic matrix composite and Fracture toughness. Her Finite element method research incorporates elements of Twist and Beam.

Her studies deal with areas such as Sandwich-structured composite and Homogenization as well as Structural engineering. Bhavani V. Sankar has included themes like Transverse plane, Thermal expansion and Envelope in her Composite number study. Her research integrates issues of Ultimate tensile strength, Thermal, Fiber, Composite laminates and Shear modulus in her study of Micromechanics.

Between 2008 and 2021, her most popular works were:

  • Mechanical properties of hybrid composites using finite element method based micromechanics (73 citations)
  • Comparison of Materials for an Integrated Thermal Protection System for Spacecraft Reentry (61 citations)
  • Damage modes in 3D glass fiber epoxy woven composites under high rate of impact loading (50 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Statistics
  • Mathematical analysis

Her primary scientific interests are in Finite element method, Composite material, Composite number, Structural engineering and Micromechanics. Her Finite element method study combines topics in areas such as Mechanical engineering, Beam and Truss. Her work on Timoshenko beam theory as part of general Beam research is often related to Cross section, thus linking different fields of science.

Her work in Fracture toughness, Toughness, Delamination, Epoxy and Stiffness is related to Composite material. As a member of one scientific family, she mostly works in the field of Fracture toughness, focusing on Fracture mechanics and, on occasion, Ultimate tensile strength. Her Structural engineering research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Space Shuttle thermal protection system and Homogenization.
