Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Geometry
  • Mathematical analysis

Geoffrey B. McFadden mainly investigates Thermodynamics, Surface energy, Anisotropy, Mechanics and Phase transition. His work on Isothermal process, Rayleigh number and Fluid dynamics as part of his general Thermodynamics study is frequently connected to Trapping and Ionic conductivity, thereby bridging the divide between different branches of science. His Surface energy research incorporates elements of Ideal solution, Double layer, Surface charge and Maxima and minima.

His studies deal with areas such as Local equilibrium, Computational physics, Condensed matter physics and Regularization as well as Anisotropy. His Mechanics research incorporates themes from Classical mechanics, Thermal, Directional solidification and Thermodynamic equilibrium. The concepts of his Phase transition study are interwoven with issues in Spinodal decomposition, Asymptotic analysis, Regular solution, Ostwald ripening and Mechanical equilibrium.

His most cited work include:

  • DIFFUSE-INTERFACE METHODS IN FLUID MECHANICS (1349 citations)
  • Phase-field model for isothermal phase transitions in binary alloys (633 citations)
  • Thermodynamically-consistent phase-field models for solidification (393 citations)

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

Geoffrey B. McFadden spends much of his time researching Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Instability, Linear stability and Convection. The study incorporates disciplines such as Classical mechanics and Floquet theory in addition to Mechanics. Geoffrey B. McFadden combines subjects such as Alloy and Directional solidification with his study of Thermodynamics.

As part of one scientific family, Geoffrey B. McFadden deals mainly with the area of Directional solidification, narrowing it down to issues related to the Anisotropy, and often Isotropy, Surface tension, Mathematical analysis, Crystallography and Limit. His research integrates issues of Shear flow and Thermal conductivity in his study of Instability. His Convection research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Thermal and Flow.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (36.82%)
  • Thermodynamics (33.83%)
  • Instability (18.91%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2007-2020)?

  • Mechanics (36.82%)
  • Thermodynamics (33.83%)
  • Linear stability (17.91%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Linear stability, Buoyancy and Convection. He works mostly in the field of Mechanics, limiting it down to topics relating to Radius and, in certain cases, Rotational symmetry and Supercooling. His studies link Phase diagram with Thermodynamics.

His study in Linear stability is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Vertical direction, Variational principle, Classical mechanics and Directional solidification. Within one scientific family, Geoffrey B. McFadden focuses on topics pertaining to Two-phase flow under Buoyancy, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Phase transition and Phase boundary. His study looks at the relationship between Convection and topics such as Thermal, which overlap with Liquidus.

Between 2007 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Laplace's Equation and the Dirichlet-Neumann Map in Multiply Connected Domains (112 citations)
  • The Contribution of Lipid Layer Movement to Tear Film Thinning and Breakup (101 citations)
  • Thermodynamics of grain boundary premelting in alloys. I. Phase-field modeling (74 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Geometry
  • Mathematical analysis

Thermodynamics, Linear stability, Phase diagram, Mechanics and Instability are his primary areas of study. Geoffrey B. McFadden has researched Thermodynamics in several fields, including Grain boundary and Intermetallic. His studies in Linear stability integrate themes in fields like Thermal, Convection, Variational principle, Classical mechanics and Toroid.

His study looks at the relationship between Phase diagram and fields such as Wetting, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Mechanics study incorporates themes from Rotational energy, Radius, Rotation and Angular momentum. His Instability research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hydrodynamic stability, Two-phase flow, Surface tension and Buoyancy.
