Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Mathematical analysis
  • Geometry

Earl H. Dowell mainly focuses on Aeroelasticity, Flutter, Mechanics, Aerodynamics and Nonlinear system. His Aeroelasticity study also includes

  • Mathematical analysis which intersects with area such as Isotropy,
  • Mach number together with Static pressure. Earl H. Dowell has researched Flutter in several fields, including Control theory, Limit cycle, Angle of attack, Structural engineering and Stall.

As a part of the same scientific study, Earl H. Dowell usually deals with the Mechanics, concentrating on Classical mechanics and frequently concerns with Vibration, Harmonic balance and Föppl–von Kármán equations. His work deals with themes such as Computational fluid dynamics, Airfoil, Vortex, Helicopter rotor and Wind tunnel, which intersect with Aerodynamics. His Nonlinear system research includes elements of Bending of plates, Geometry, Chord and Boundary layer.

His most cited work include:

  • A Modern Course in Aeroelasticity (605 citations)
  • Aeroelasticity of Plates and Shells (484 citations)
  • Modeling of Fluid-Structure Interaction (459 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Aeroelasticity, Mechanics, Flutter, Nonlinear system and Aerodynamics. His study on Aeroelasticity also encompasses disciplines like

  • Control theory that connect with fields like Control engineering,
  • Harmonic balance, which have a strong connection to Frequency domain. While the research belongs to areas of Mechanics, Earl H. Dowell spends his time largely on the problem of Classical mechanics, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Vibration.

  • Applied mathematics, which have a strong connection to Transonic. The Flutter study which covers Structural engineering that intersects with Wind tunnel. His Mathematical analysis research integrates issues from Dynamical systems theory, Bifurcation, Transverse plane and Vibration, Modal analysis.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Minimal subspace rotation on the Stiefel manifold for stabilization and enhancement of projection-based reduced order models for the compressible Navier-Stokes equations (54 citations)
  • Nonlinear Elastic Plate in a Flow of Gas: Recent Results and Conjectures (27 citations)
  • Detecting multi-pulse chaotic dynamics of high-dimensional non-autonomous nonlinear system for circular mesh antenna (26 citations)

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

  • Mathematical analysis
  • Mechanics
  • Nonlinear system

Mechanics, Nonlinear system, Aeroelasticity, Equations of motion and Flutter are his primary areas of study. Earl H. Dowell has included themes like Vibration and Thrust-to-weight ratio in his Mechanics study. The concepts of his Nonlinear system study are interwoven with issues in Partial differential equation, Mathematical analysis, Buckling, Normal mode and Transient response.

His study in Aeroelasticity is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Acoustics, Piezoelectricity, Control theory, Harmonic balance and Wind tunnel. His work investigates the relationship between Flutter and topics such as Structural engineering that intersect with problems in Flow velocity. His Aerodynamics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Airfoil, Restoring force and Reduced frequency.
