E. R. G. Eckert regularly links together related areas like Porosity in his Thermodynamics studies. His Heat transfer coefficient research includes themes of Thermal conduction and Heat flux. His Mass transfer research incorporates themes from Wind tunnel and Refrigerant.

His most cited work include:

  • Compact heat exchangers (2698 citations)
  • Analysis of heat and mass transfer (1468 citations)
  • Heat transfer and friction in tubes with repeated-rib roughness (535 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Heat transfer, Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Heat transfer coefficient and Turbulence. His Heat transfer research incorporates elements of Convection and Churchill–Bernstein equation. His study looks at the relationship between Mechanics and fields such as Turbine blade, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems.

Thermal conduction, Mass transfer, Film temperature, Prandtl number and Thermal diffusivity are among the areas of Thermodynamics where the researcher is concentrating his efforts. He interconnects Nusselt number and Heat flux in the investigation of issues within Heat transfer coefficient. His studies deal with areas such as Laminar flow reactor, Open-channel flow and Laminar sublayer as well as Laminar flow.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Heat transfer (58.20%)
  • Mechanics (57.67%)
  • Thermodynamics (36.51%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 1985-2021)?

  • Heat transfer (58.20%)
  • Thermodynamics (36.51%)
  • Mechanics (57.67%)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Heat transfer, Thermodynamics, Mechanics, Mass transfer and Turbine blade. E. R. G. Eckert has included themes like New energy, Heat exchanger, Fluid mechanics and Boundary layer in his Heat transfer study. His research investigates the connection with Mechanics and areas like Meteorology which intersect with concerns in Anisotropy and Blade.

The concepts of his Mass transfer study are interwoven with issues in Surface, Curvature, Pressure gradient, Churchill–Bernstein equation and Convective heat transfer. Turbine blade is a subfield of Mechanical engineering that he investigates. The Flow study combines topics in areas such as Turbulence and Mean flow.

Between 1985 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Flow Visualization in a Linear Turbine Cascade of High Performance Turbine Blades (212 citations)
  • The Influence of Curvature on Film Cooling Performance (59 citations)
  • Heat transfer - A review of 2001 literature (41 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Heat transfer

His primary scientific interests are in Thermodynamics, Heat transfer, Mechanics, Mass transfer and Thermal conduction. His research in Thermodynamics intersects with topics in Porous medium and Solar energy. His study in Heat transfer is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Thermal radiation and Boundary layer.

His studies examine the connections between Mechanics and genetics, as well as such issues in Turbine blade, with regards to Flow and Reynolds number. His Mass transfer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Coolant, Churchill–Bernstein equation, Flow visualization, Chilton and Colburn J-factor analogy and Convective heat transfer. His work in Thermal conduction tackles topics such as Contact resistance which are related to areas like Convection, Microscale chemistry and Composite material.
