David J. Steigmann mainly investigates Classical mechanics, Mathematical analysis, Mechanics, Composite material and Bending. His Classical mechanics study incorporates themes from Nonlinear elasticity, Surface, Dilation and Curvature. He combines subjects such as Function, Deformation, Rotational symmetry and Strain energy with his study of Mathematical analysis.

The Mechanics study combines topics in areas such as Adhesion, Bifurcation, Thermodynamics and Anchoring. His research in Composite material intersects with topics in Geodesic and Constitutive equation. David J. Steigmann focuses mostly in the field of Geodesic, narrowing it down to topics relating to Buckling and, in certain cases, Lattice, Elasticity and Twist.

- Elastic surface—substrate interactions (297 citations)
- Tension-field theory (247 citations)
- Plane deformations of elastic solids with intrinsic boundary elasticity (230 citations)

His primary areas of investigation include Classical mechanics, Mathematical analysis, Composite material, Mechanics and Geometry. His Classical mechanics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Material symmetry, Isotropy, Axial symmetry, Curvature and Magnetic field. His Mathematical analysis study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Linear elasticity, Finite strain theory and Strain energy.

His Composite material research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Dynamic relaxation and Twist. The various areas that David J. Steigmann examines in his Twist study include Lattice and Geodesic. His study in Mechanics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Viscoplasticity, Finite element method, Constitutive equation, Plasticity and Deformation.

David J. Steigmann focuses on Composite material, Classical mechanics, Mathematical analysis, Twist and Mechanics. His Classical mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Solid mechanics, Field, Mathematical structure, Lattice and Curvature. His Curvature research focuses on subjects like Lagrange multiplier, which are linked to Deformation.

His work in Mathematical analysis addresses issues such as Energy, which are connected to fields such as Legendre polynomials and Hadamard transform. David J. Steigmann usually deals with Twist and limits it to topics linked to Elasticity and Edge. In the subject of general Mechanics, his work in Rotational symmetry is often linked to Sensitivity, thereby combining diverse domains of study.

His primary scientific interests are in Lattice, Classical mechanics, Rod, Twist and Mechanics. His work deals with themes such as Positive-definite matrix, Mathematical analysis, Boundary value problem, Quadratic equation and Deformation, which intersect with Lattice. His studies deal with areas such as Surface deformation, Elasticity, Shell theory, Structural material and Curvature as well as Classical mechanics.

His Rotational symmetry study, which is part of a larger body of work in Mechanics, is frequently linked to Context, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Rotational symmetry research integrates issues from Elastic cylinder, Surface strain, Fiber, Bending and Geodesic. His Continuum hypothesis research includes themes of Elasticity, Rigidity, Composite material, Flexural rigidity and Substructure.
