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.
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.
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.
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.
