Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Heat transfer

Ephraim M Sparrow mainly investigates Mechanics, Heat transfer, Thermodynamics, Natural convection and Heat transfer coefficient. His study in Laminar flow, Convective heat transfer, Reynolds number, Turbulence and Churchill–Bernstein equation are all subfields of Mechanics. His Heat transfer research incorporates themes from Nusselt number, Condensation, Fluid dynamics, Thermal conduction and Pressure drop.

In his research, Radiation is intimately related to Fin, which falls under the overarching field of Thermodynamics. His research in Natural convection focuses on subjects like Flow visualization, which are connected to Vortex and Wind tunnel. His study in Heat transfer coefficient is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Fin and Airflow.

His most cited work include:

  • Theory for Off-Specular Reflection From Roughened Surfaces* (1420 citations)
  • Radiation Heat Transfer (1072 citations)
  • Handbook of Numerical Heat Transfer (675 citations)

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

Ephraim M Sparrow focuses on Mechanics, Fluid dynamics, Computer simulation, Turbulence and Heat transfer. His research on Mechanics frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Thermodynamics. His research investigates the link between Fluid dynamics and topics such as Computational fluid dynamics that cross with problems in Drag coefficient and Fluid mechanics.

His biological study deals with issues like Flow, which deal with fields such as Boundary value problem. His Heat transfer study frequently links to related topics such as Heat exchanger. His study in the fields of Nusselt number under the domain of Reynolds number overlaps with other disciplines such as Angle of attack.

Between 2004 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Universal solutions for the streamwise variation of the temperature of a moving sheet in the presence of a moving fluid (114 citations)
  • Heat transfer in all pipe flow regimes: laminar, transitional/intermittent, and turbulent (112 citations)
  • A thermal-ablation bioheat model including liquid-to-vapor phase change, pressure- and necrosis-dependent perfusion, and moisture-dependent properties (112 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Mechanics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Mechanics, Turbulence, Laminar flow, Computer simulation and Thermodynamics. Ephraim M Sparrow focuses mostly in the field of Mechanics, narrowing it down to topics relating to Classical mechanics and, in certain cases, Surface tension. His Turbulence study combines topics in areas such as Geometry, Computational fluid dynamics and Internal flow.

His Laminar flow research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Laminar flow reactor, Open-channel flow, Flow separation, Laminar sublayer and Convective heat transfer. The Thermodynamics study combines topics in areas such as Cylinder and Radius. The study incorporates disciplines such as Control theory, Core and Heat equation in addition to Heat transfer.
