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

G. P. Peterson spends much of his time researching Thermodynamics, Heat pipe, Heat transfer, Mechanics and Composite material. All of his Thermodynamics and Heat transfer coefficient, Heat flux, Critical heat flux, Nucleate boiling and Boiling investigations are sub-components of the entire Thermodynamics study. In Heat pipe, he works on issues like Evaporator, which are connected to Condenser.

He has included themes like Nusselt number and Porous medium in his Heat transfer study. In his research on the topic of Composite material, Contact resistance is strongly related with Thermal contact conductance. G. P. Peterson combines subjects such as Thermal conduction, Nanoparticle, Thermal and Carbon nanotube with his study of Thermal conductivity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Thermodynamics (43.49%)
  • Heat pipe (36.19%)
  • Heat transfer (36.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Composite material (22.86%)
  • Thermodynamics (43.49%)
  • Heat transfer (36.19%)

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

His main research concerns Composite material, Thermodynamics, Heat transfer, Mechanics and Thermal. His study focuses on the intersection of Composite material and fields such as Thermal resistance with connections in the field of Thermal grease and Metallurgy. Much of his study explores Thermodynamics relationship to Porous medium.

His work in Heat transfer coefficient and Heat pipe are all subfields of Heat transfer research. The various areas that G. P. Peterson examines in his Heat pipe study include Fluid mechanics and Heat sink. G. P. Peterson studies Mechanics, focusing on Nusselt number in particular.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Flexible thermal ground plane and manufacturing the same (58 citations)
  • High resolution transmission electron microscopy study on polyacrylonitrile/carbon nanotube based carbon fibers and the effect of structure development on the thermal and electrical conductivities (54 citations)
  • Entropy generation in thermal systems with solid structures - A concise review (48 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Composite material

His primary areas of study are Thermodynamics, Heat transfer, Mechanics, Thermal and Heat flux. His Thermodynamics research incorporates themes from Mean field theory and Binding energy. G. P. Peterson has researched Heat transfer in several fields, including Flow, Flow pattern, Analytical chemistry, Condensation and Visualization.

His Mechanics study combines topics in areas such as Slip, Slip line field and Non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The concepts of his Heat flux study are interwoven with issues in Porosity, Porous medium, Flow velocity, Thermal equilibrium and Convective heat transfer. His study looks at the relationship between Porosity and topics such as Boiling, which overlap with Composite material.
