Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Composite material
  • Mechanics

Dominic Vella spends much of his time researching Mechanics, Composite material, Capillary action, Optics and Buckling. His research in Mechanics intersects with topics in Snap through and Classical mechanics. His work on Elasticity, Material properties and Blisters as part of general Composite material study is frequently linked to Substrate, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science.

In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Capillary action, Liquid drop and Deformation is strongly linked to Compression. His studies deal with areas such as Measure, Geometry and Contact angle as well as Optics. His studies in Buckling integrate themes in fields like Thin sheet, Focus, Instability and Euler's formula.

His most cited work include:

  • The “Cheerios effect” (271 citations)
  • The macroscopic delamination of thin films from elastic substrates (193 citations)
  • Elasticity of an interfacial particle raft (167 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Mechanics, Composite material, Buckling, Surface tension and Capillary action. His work deals with themes such as Classical mechanics, Indentation and Scaling, which intersect with Mechanics. His work in the fields of Composite material, such as Material properties, Tension, Elasticity and Delamination, overlaps with other areas such as Poisson's ratio.

His research investigates the link between Buckling and topics such as Bending stiffness that cross with problems in Curvature, Inertia and Compression. The concepts of his Surface tension study are interwoven with issues in Lubrication theory and Drop. His Capillary action study incorporates themes from Adhesion, Nanotechnology, Optics and Deformation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (51.97%)
  • Composite material (14.85%)
  • Buckling (16.16%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Mechanics (51.97%)
  • Buckling (16.16%)
  • Composite material (14.85%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Mechanics, Buckling, Composite material, Inertia and Indentation. His Mechanics research incorporates elements of Bifurcation, Bending stiffness, Scaling, Asymptotic analysis and Bistability. In his work, Plane, Quasistatic process, Fluid–structure interaction, Wrinkle and Instability is strongly intertwined with Tension, which is a subfield of Scaling.

His research in Buckling focuses on subjects like Soap film, which are connected to Buckle and Dynamic loading. His research in Inertia tackles topics such as Compression which are related to areas like Solid sphere, Vertical deflection and Splash. His Indentation study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Lift, Measure, Tension field, Material properties and Shell.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Static bistability of spherical caps (23 citations)
  • Regimes of wrinkling in an indented floating elastic sheet. (22 citations)
  • Dynamics of viscoelastic snap-through (21 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Composite material
  • Mechanics

His primary areas of study are Mechanics, Buckling, Deformation, Scaling and Surface tension. Specifically, his work in Mechanics is concerned with the study of Pressure gradient. The various areas that he examines in his Buckling study include Constraint, Mechanism and Bistability.

Dominic Vella has included themes like Adhesion, Capillary action, Actuator and Dimple in his Deformation study. His research integrates issues of Young's modulus, Edge and Wrinkle in his study of Scaling. His Wetting research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Bending, Contact angle and Stress.
