Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Organic chemistry
  • Combustion
  • Thermodynamics

Charles K. Westbrook mainly focuses on Combustion, Thermodynamics, Chemical kinetics, Ignition system and Organic chemistry. Combustion is a subfield of Physical chemistry that Charles K. Westbrook explores. His studies deal with areas such as Chemical reaction and Reaction mechanism as well as Thermodynamics.

His work in Chemical kinetics addresses subjects such as Butane, which are connected to disciplines such as Plug flow and Heat engine. His research integrates issues of Jet and Hydrocarbon in his study of Shock tube. His Reaction rate study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Inorganic chemistry and Reaction rate constant.

His most cited work include:

  • Simplified Reaction Mechanisms for the Oxidation of Hydrocarbon Fuels in Flames (1655 citations)
  • A Comprehensive Modeling Study of n-Heptane Oxidation (1515 citations)
  • Chemical kinetic modeling of hydrocarbon combustion (1170 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Combustion, Thermodynamics, Ignition system, Chemical kinetics and Reaction mechanism. He has researched Combustion in several fields, including Octane, Hydrocarbon and Diesel fuel. His Thermodynamics study incorporates themes from Alkane and Elementary reaction.

His study in Ignition system is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Heptane, Molecule, Analytical chemistry, Mechanics and Homogeneous charge compression ignition. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Chemical kinetics, Inorganic chemistry, Reaction intermediate and Chemical reactor is strongly linked to Chemical reaction. In his research on the topic of Reaction mechanism, Benzene is strongly related with Photochemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Combustion (56.95%)
  • Thermodynamics (43.05%)
  • Ignition system (32.74%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Combustion (56.95%)
  • Thermodynamics (43.05%)
  • Shock tube (18.39%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Combustion, Thermodynamics, Shock tube, Ignition system and Organic chemistry. The study incorporates disciplines such as Diesel fuel, 3-Methylheptane, Isomerization, Process engineering and Double bond in addition to Combustion. His studies in Thermodynamics integrate themes in fields like Chemical kinetics, Reactivity and Diffusion flame.

Charles K. Westbrook interconnects Alkane, Atmospheric temperature range and Analytical chemistry in the investigation of issues within Shock tube. His Ignition system research incorporates themes from Heptane, Reaction rate, Hydrocarbon and Gasoline. Charles K. Westbrook focuses mostly in the field of Organic chemistry, narrowing it down to topics relating to Laminar flow and, in certain cases, Jet stirred reactor.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A comprehensive chemical kinetic combustion model for the four butanol isomers (348 citations)
  • An experimental and modeling study of shock tube and rapid compression machine ignition of n-butylbenzene/air mixtures (94 citations)
  • A comprehensive iso-octane combustion model with improved thermochemistry and chemical kinetics (90 citations)

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

  • Organic chemistry
  • Thermodynamics
  • Hydrogen

Charles K. Westbrook spends much of his time researching Combustion, Thermodynamics, Ignition system, Shock tube and Organic chemistry. His work deals with themes such as Reaction rate, Reactivity and Bond-dissociation energy, which intersect with Combustion. His research on Thermodynamics often connects related topics like Diesel fuel.

His studies examine the connections between Ignition system and genetics, as well as such issues in Heptane, with regards to Hydrogen, Alkane, Chemical kinetics, Carbon monoxide and Chemical species. While the research belongs to areas of Shock tube, Charles K. Westbrook spends his time largely on the problem of Atmospheric temperature range, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Reaction mechanism. Charles K. Westbrook focuses mostly in the field of Organic chemistry, narrowing it down to matters related to Laminar flow and, in some cases, Propene, Photochemistry and Redox.
