George M. Homsy mostly deals with Mechanics, Classical mechanics, Thermodynamics, Mathematical analysis and Instability. His Mechanics research includes elements of Viscous fingering, Porous medium, Contact angle and Boundary value problem. George M. Homsy combines subjects such as Viscous liquid, Displacement and Anisotropy with his study of Viscous fingering.
George M. Homsy interconnects Scaling law, Dispersion, Length scale and Fluidization in the investigation of issues within Classical mechanics. His Mathematical analysis research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Flow, Stokes' law and Work. His Instability study incorporates themes from Fluidized bed, Drop, Spinning drop method, Viscosity and Fluid dynamics.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Mechanics, Classical mechanics, Thermodynamics, Instability and Capillary action. George M. Homsy combines subjects such as Viscous fingering and Porous medium with his study of Mechanics. The concepts of his Viscous fingering study are interwoven with issues in Péclet number and Viscous liquid.
His work focuses on many connections between Classical mechanics and other disciplines, such as Vortex, that overlap with his field of interest in Reynolds number. His Instability research includes elements of Viscosity, Wavenumber, Displacement, Hele-Shaw flow and Fluid dynamics. His Capillary action research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Lubrication theory, Optics and Capillary pressure.
His primary scientific interests are in Mechanics, Capillary action, Optics, Classical mechanics and Thermodynamics. Much of his study explores Mechanics relationship to Drop. His Capillary action study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Two-phase flow, Coating, Dip-coating, Wedge and Capillary pressure.
His Optics research includes themes of Wetting, Composite material, Contact angle and Thin film. His Classical mechanics research incorporates themes from Péclet number and Scaling. As part of the same scientific family, he usually focuses on Thermodynamics, concentrating on Viscous fingering and intersecting with Energy stability, Convective heat transfer and Plateau–Rayleigh instability.
His primary areas of study are Mechanics, Optics, Marangoni effect, Drop and Classical mechanics. His Mechanics research incorporates elements of Conical surface and Capillary action, Thermodynamics. His research integrates issues of Amplitude and Length scale in his study of Thermodynamics.
His study in Optics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Wetting, Buoyancy, Thin film, Contact angle and Capillary number. His studies deal with areas such as Nanotechnology and Instability as well as Drop. In his research on the topic of Classical mechanics, Spinning drop method and Viscosity is strongly related with Stokes flow.
