Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Turbulence

George Constantinescu mainly focuses on Mechanics, Turbulence, Large eddy simulation, Reynolds number and Detached eddy simulation. He works mostly in the field of Mechanics, limiting it down to topics relating to Classical mechanics and, in certain cases, Computational fluid dynamics, as a part of the same area of interest. His Turbulence study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Vortex and Shear stress.

His Large eddy simulation research incorporates elements of Polar coordinate system and Mathematical analysis, Spectral method, Spherical coordinate system. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Reynolds number, concentrating on Numerical analysis and intersecting with Computational science and Simulation. His Flow separation course of study focuses on Laminar flow and Boundary layer, Strouhal number and Drag.

His most cited work include:

  • A numerical method for large-eddy simulation in complex geometries (425 citations)
  • Numerical investigations of flow over a sphere in the subcritical and supercritical regimes (164 citations)
  • LES and DES Investigations of Turbulent Flow over a Sphere at Re = 10,000 (115 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Mechanics, Turbulence, Large eddy simulation, Reynolds number and Vortex. His research in Mechanics tackles topics such as Classical mechanics which are related to areas like Flow. George Constantinescu has included themes like Horseshoe vortex, Geotechnical engineering and Shear stress in his Turbulence study.

In his research on the topic of Large eddy simulation, Combustion chamber is strongly related with Combustor. His study on Strouhal number is often connected to Solver as part of broader study in Reynolds number. His Vortex research integrates issues from Stratification, Wake and Buoyancy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (66.67%)
  • Turbulence (47.92%)
  • Large eddy simulation (29.17%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Mechanics (66.67%)
  • Turbulence (47.92%)
  • Flow (16.15%)

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

George Constantinescu focuses on Mechanics, Turbulence, Flow, Vortex and Open-channel flow. In the field of Mechanics, his study on Turbulence kinetic energy, Large eddy simulation, Mean flow and Free surface overlaps with subjects such as Mixing. The Large eddy simulation study combines topics in areas such as Gravity current and Front velocity.

His Turbulence research incorporates themes from Drag, Wake and Vorticity. His Vortex research includes elements of Secondary flow, Two-phase flow, Classical mechanics and Shear stress. His study explores the link between Open-channel flow and topics such as Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations that cross with problems in Civil engineering and Deck.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Turbulent flow structure at a discordant river confluence: Asymmetric jet dynamics with implications for channel morphology (28 citations)
  • Influence of planform geometry and momentum ratio on thermal mixing at a stream confluence with a concordant bed (28 citations)
  • Flow-Field Complexity and Design Estimation of Pier-Scour Depth: Sixty Years since Laursen and Toch (26 citations)

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

  • Mechanics
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Turbulence

Mechanics, Turbulence, Vortex, Open-channel flow and Flow are his primary areas of study. His work on Free surface, Flow separation and Large eddy simulation is typically connected to Entrainment as part of general Mechanics study, connecting several disciplines of science. George Constantinescu combines subjects such as Flow, Entrainment, Bedform and Vorticity with his study of Large eddy simulation.

His Turbulence study combines topics in areas such as Wake and Tributary. In his research, Laminar flow, Horseshoe vortex and Potential flow around a circular cylinder is intimately related to Classical mechanics, which falls under the overarching field of Vortex. In his work, Pipe flow and Meteorology is strongly intertwined with Drag, which is a subfield of Mean flow.
