Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Viscosity

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Classical mechanics, Mechanics, Shear flow, Polymer and Brownian dynamics. His Classical mechanics research integrates issues from Instability, Fiber, Viscosity, Drag and Direct numerical simulation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Couette flow, Taylor–Couette flow and Deborah number.

His work deals with themes such as Suspension, Dispersion and Isotropy, which intersect with Mechanics. The various areas that he examines in his Shear flow study include Motion, Shear rate, Volumetric flow rate, Simple shear and Scaling law. His Polymer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Relaxation, Hysteresis, Physical chemistry, Molecular physics and Viscoelasticity.

His most cited work include:

  • A purely elastic instability in Taylor-Couette flow (339 citations)
  • Purely elastic instabilities in viscometric flows (312 citations)
  • The hydrodynamic stress in a suspension of rods (264 citations)

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

Eric S. G. Shaqfeh spends much of his time researching Mechanics, Classical mechanics, Shear flow, Instability and Viscoelasticity. Mechanics and Brownian dynamics are two areas of study in which Eric S. G. Shaqfeh engages in interdisciplinary work. His Classical mechanics study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Two-phase flow, Constant Viscosity Elastic Fluids, Pipe flow, Vortex and Fluid dynamics.

Eric S. G. Shaqfeh has included themes like Simple shear, Shear stress, Shear thinning and Shear rate in his Shear flow study. His work on Elastic instability and Linear stability as part of his general Instability study is frequently connected to Vesicle, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. As part of the same scientific family, Eric S. G. Shaqfeh usually focuses on Viscoelasticity, concentrating on Rheology and intersecting with Viscosity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (53.71%)
  • Classical mechanics (28.98%)
  • Shear flow (17.31%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Mechanics (53.71%)
  • Viscoelasticity (13.78%)
  • Composite material (6.36%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Mechanics, Viscoelasticity, Composite material, Rheology and Shear flow. His Mechanics study often links to related topics such as Elasticity. His studies in Viscoelasticity integrate themes in fields like Non-Newtonian fluid, Finite volume method, Finite element method and Complex fluid.

His Composite material research incorporates themes from Thin film and Suspension. While the research belongs to areas of Shear flow, Eric S. G. Shaqfeh spends his time largely on the problem of Shear rate, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Péclet number. The study incorporates disciplines such as Dispersion coefficient, Mass transfer and Taylor dispersion in addition to Flow.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The Effect of Hematocrit on Platelet Adhesion: Experiments and Simulations. (38 citations)
  • In vitro measurement of particle margination in the microchannel flow: effect of varying hematocrit. (32 citations)
  • Theory to predict particle migration and margination in the pressure-driven channel flow of blood (31 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Viscosity

Eric S. G. Shaqfeh mainly investigates Mechanics, Viscoelasticity, Rheology, Thermodynamics and Flow. In his research on the topic of Mechanics, Dilatant is strongly related with Viscosity. His study explores the link between Rheology and topics such as Volume fraction that cross with problems in Vorticity, Material properties and Shear.

His studies in Shear rate and Shear flow are all subfields of Thermodynamics research. His work focuses on many connections between Flow and other disciplines, such as Unstructured grid, that overlap with his field of interest in Immersed boundary method. In his research, Instability is intimately related to Compression, which falls under the overarching field of Surface tension.
