Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Turbulence
  • Fluid dynamics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Turbulence, Mechanics, Classical mechanics, K-epsilon turbulence model and Shear flow. The Turbulence study combines topics in areas such as Jet, Statistical physics and Boundary layer. Reynolds number, Reynolds stress, Reynolds stress equation model, Heat transfer and Shear stress are the core of his Mechanics study.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Potential flow, Curvature, Open-channel flow and Dissipation in addition to Classical mechanics. His K-epsilon turbulence model study combines topics in areas such as Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations, Shear velocity and Turbulence kinetic energy. His work focuses on many connections between Shear flow and other disciplines, such as Gravitation, that overlap with his field of interest in Planetary boundary layer and Fluctuating pressure.

His most cited work include:

  • The numerical computation of turbulent flows (9313 citations)
  • Progress in the development of a Reynolds-stress turbulence closure (3116 citations)
  • The prediction of laminarization with a two-equation model of turbulence (3099 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Mechanics, Turbulence, Classical mechanics, Reynolds number and Heat transfer. His work on Flow, Shear flow, K-epsilon turbulence model and Boundary layer as part of general Mechanics research is frequently linked to Materials science, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. The Turbulence study combines topics in areas such as Computational fluid dynamics and Statistical physics.

His Classical mechanics research incorporates themes from Second moment of area, Jet, Flow, Dissipation and Convection–diffusion equation. His Reynolds number study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Optics, Pipe flow, Rotation, Fluid dynamics and Secondary flow. His Heat transfer research focuses on Nusselt number and how it relates to Duct.

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Turbulence, Mechanics, Mechanical engineering, Computational fluid dynamics and Flow. Brian Launder has included themes like Statistical physics, Laminar flow and Classical mechanics in his Turbulence study. His study looks at the relationship between Mechanics and fields such as Rotation, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

The concepts of his Computational fluid dynamics study are interwoven with issues in Flow, K-epsilon turbulence model and Rotor. Many of his research projects under K-epsilon turbulence model are closely connected to Momentum and Function with Momentum and Function, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His research integrates issues of Fluid dynamics and Rotational symmetry in his study of Flow.

Between 2004 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Modelling Turbulence in Engineering and the Environment: Second-Moment Routes to Closure (100 citations)
  • Marine cloud brightening (92 citations)
  • Laminar, Transitional, and Turbulent Flows in Rotor-Stator Cavities (68 citations)

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

  • Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Fluid dynamics

Brian Launder mainly investigates Mechanics, Turbulence, Reynolds number, Computational fluid dynamics and Flow. His studies deal with areas such as Second moment of area, Rotation and Classical mechanics as well as Mechanics. His research in the fields of Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations overlaps with other disciplines such as Exact differential equation.

His research investigates the connection between Reynolds number and topics such as Laminar flow that intersect with issues in Reynolds decomposition, Reynolds stress equation model, Reynolds operator and Operations research. His Computational fluid dynamics research incorporates elements of Flettner rotor, Rotor, Meteorology and K-epsilon turbulence model. Brian Launder interconnects Viscous dissipation, Reynolds stress, Statistical physics, Turbulent viscosity and Turbulence kinetic energy in the investigation of issues within Navier–Stokes equations.
