Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Surgery

Duncan Dowson focuses on Lubrication, Composite material, Tribology, Mechanics and Lubricant. His work deals with themes such as Point and Metallurgy, which intersect with Lubrication. His Composite material study combines topics in areas such as Bearing and Forensic engineering.

His Tribology research includes themes of Compression and Subject. Duncan Dowson has included themes like Classical mechanics, Young's modulus, Optics and Fluid bearing in his Mechanics study. His study explores the link between Lubricant and topics such as Contact area that cross with problems in Modulus.

His most cited work include:

  • Isothermal Elastohydrodynamic Lubrication of Point Contacts: Part III—Fully Flooded Results (700 citations)
  • History of Tribology (648 citations)
  • A generalized Reynolds equation for fluid-film lubrication (376 citations)

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

Duncan Dowson spends much of his time researching Lubrication, Composite material, Tribology, Lubricant and Mechanics. His Lubrication study deals with Joint intersecting with Orthodontics. His research ties Cushion and Composite material together.

His Tribology study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Femoral head and Corrosion. The concepts of his Lubricant study are interwoven with issues in Thermal, Numerical analysis, Viscosity and Contact area. Duncan Dowson focuses mostly in the field of Mechanics, narrowing it down to topics relating to Isothermal process and, in certain cases, Point.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Lubrication (45.40%)
  • Composite material (28.19%)
  • Tribology (27.00%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2001-2020)?

  • Lubrication (45.40%)
  • Tribology (27.00%)
  • Metallurgy (14.24%)

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

His main research concerns Lubrication, Tribology, Metallurgy, Corrosion and Tribocorrosion. His Lubrication research integrates issues from Lubricant, Mechanics and Forensic engineering. His studies in Mechanics integrate themes in fields like Plane and Engineering drawing.

His research integrates issues of Cobalt, Transmission electron microscopy and Steady state in his study of Tribology. His Metallurgy study incorporates themes from Bearing surface, Hip simulator, Hip joint simulator and Prosthesis. Duncan Dowson combines subjects such as Polyethylene, Metal and Bearing with his study of Corrosion.

Between 2001 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Tribology: A Systems Approach to the Science and Technology of Friction, Lubrication, and Wear (298 citations)
  • A hip joint simulator study of the performance of metal-on-metal joints: Part II: design. (211 citations)
  • A hip joint simulator study of the performance of metal-on-metal joints: Part I: the role of materials. (160 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Surgery

His scientific interests lie mostly in Lubrication, Tribology, Metallurgy, Corrosion and Tribocorrosion. His Lubrication research entails a greater understanding of Mechanical engineering. His Corrosion study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Friction coefficient and Cobalt.

His study looks at the relationship between Forensic engineering and fields such as Composite material, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. As a part of the same scientific family, Duncan Dowson mostly works in the field of Polyethylene, focusing on Reciprocating motion and, on occasion, Prosthesis. Duncan Dowson has researched Lubricant in several fields, including Engine efficiency, Coating, Dead centre and Honing.
