Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Heat transfer

Francis A Kulacki mostly deals with Natural convection, Heat transfer, Mechanics, Rayleigh number and Thermodynamics. His Heat transfer study combines topics in areas such as Nusselt number, Thermal conductivity and Porous medium. His Porous medium research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Annulus and Mass transfer.

His research investigates the connection between Mechanics and topics such as Thermal that intersect with problems in Filler and Composite material. Forced convection is closely connected to Combined forced and natural convection in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Rayleigh number. His Convective heat transfer research incorporates elements of Fin, Heat transfer coefficient and Churchill–Bernstein equation.

His most cited work include:

  • The effect of variable viscosity on convective heat transfer along a vertical surface in a saturated porous medium (232 citations)
  • Thermal convection in a horizontal fluid layer with uniform volumetric energy sources (144 citations)
  • Natural convection in porous media (139 citations)

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

Francis A Kulacki mainly investigates Mechanics, Heat transfer, Thermodynamics, Natural convection and Nusselt number. His work on Porosity expands to the thematically related Mechanics. His Heat transfer study also includes

  • Mass transfer which intersects with area such as Frost,
  • Isothermal process together with Adiabatic process.

His study of Rayleigh number is a part of Natural convection. His Nusselt number study incorporates themes from Péclet number and Concentric tube heat exchanger. Francis A Kulacki has researched Heat transfer coefficient in several fields, including Film temperature and Heat exchanger.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (56.98%)
  • Heat transfer (41.47%)
  • Thermodynamics (37.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2020)?

  • Mechanics (56.98%)
  • Heat transfer (41.47%)
  • Thermodynamics (37.60%)

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

Francis A Kulacki spends much of his time researching Mechanics, Heat transfer, Thermodynamics, Heat transfer coefficient and Boiling. His Heat transfer research includes elements of Multiphase flow, Coolant and Porous medium. Thermodynamics is closely attributed to Bubble in his research.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Convection, Dimensionless quantity, Boundary layer, Heat exchanger and Composite material in addition to Heat transfer coefficient. His work carried out in the field of Natural convection brings together such families of science as Porosity and Volume. The concepts of his Rayleigh number study are interwoven with issues in Combined forced and natural convection, Film temperature, Forced convection and Churchill–Bernstein equation.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • An experimental study of boiling in dilute emulsions, part A: Heat transfer (27 citations)
  • Heat transfer and fouling performance of finned tube heat exchangers: Experimentation via on line monitoring (23 citations)
  • Natural Convection in Superposed Fluid-Porous Layers (23 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Mechanical engineering

Francis A Kulacki mainly focuses on Mechanics, Heat transfer, Fluid dynamics, Natural convection and Thermodynamics. His work on Reynolds number, Nusselt number and Convective heat transfer as part of general Mechanics study is frequently connected to Streaming current, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His studies in Nusselt number integrate themes in fields like Rayleigh number and Classical mechanics.

His Heat transfer research focuses on Micro heat exchanger in particular. His Natural convection research incorporates themes from Porosity and Porous medium. His research on Thermodynamics often connects related topics like Emulsion.
