Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen

Hai Wang mainly investigates Combustion, Soot, Laminar flow, Premixed flame and Analytical chemistry. His Combustion research incorporates elements of Reaction rate, Pyrolysis and Ignition system, Thermodynamics. He has included themes like Chemical physics, Particle, Nanoparticle and Volume fraction in his Soot study.

His studies deal with areas such as Chemical reaction and Physical chemistry as well as Laminar flow. Hai Wang usually deals with Premixed flame and limits it to topics linked to Mechanics and Kinetic theory of gases and Classical mechanics. His work deals with themes such as Laminar flame speed, Scanning mobility particle sizer and Adiabatic flame temperature, which intersect with Analytical chemistry.

His most cited work include:

  • A detailed kinetic modeling study of aromatics formation in laminar premixed acetylene and ethylene flames (911 citations)
  • Detailed modeling of soot particle nucleation and growth (720 citations)
  • Formation of nascent soot and other condensed-phase materials in flames (591 citations)

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

His scientific interests lie mostly in Combustion, Analytical chemistry, Soot, Laminar flow and Thermodynamics. His Combustion research incorporates themes from Ignition system, Hydrocarbon, Kinetic energy, Methane and Pyrolysis. His Analytical chemistry research includes elements of Combustor, Premixed flame, Particle and Particle size.

His studies in Soot integrate themes in fields like Chemical physics, Particle-size distribution, Diffusion flame and Nucleation. His work in Laminar flow covers topics such as Laminar flame speed which are related to areas like Flame speed. His Thermodynamics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Hydrogen, Physical chemistry and Acetylene.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Combustion (32.53%)
  • Analytical chemistry (24.90%)
  • Soot (20.48%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Combustion (32.53%)
  • Jet fuel (4.82%)
  • Pyrolysis (8.03%)

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

Hai Wang spends much of his time researching Combustion, Jet fuel, Pyrolysis, Methane and Ignition system. Particularly relevant to Laminar flame speed is his body of work in Combustion. His Laminar flame speed research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Alkane and Thermodynamics.

His study in Ignition system is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Laminar flow, Curse of dimensionality, Ozone and Extinction. Chemical physics is closely connected to Flame structure in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Laminar flow. His work in Jet addresses issues such as Fraction, which are connected to fields such as Soot.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A physics-based approach to modeling real-fuel combustion chemistry - I. Evidence from experiments, and thermodynamic, chemical kinetic and statistical considerations (132 citations)
  • A physics-based approach to modeling real-fuel combustion chemistry – II. Reaction kinetic models of jet and rocket fuels (117 citations)
  • A physics-based approach to modeling real-fuel combustion chemistry – IV. HyChem modeling of combustion kinetics of a bio-derived jet fuel and its blends with a conventional Jet A (41 citations)

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

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Organic chemistry
  • Oxygen

His primary areas of investigation include Combustion, Ignition system, Jet fuel, Pyrolysis and Thermodynamics. Specifically, his work in Combustion is concerned with the study of Laminar flame speed. Hai Wang works mostly in the field of Ignition system, limiting it down to topics relating to Extinction and, in certain cases, Chemical physics, Flame structure, Laminar flow, Turbulence and Chemical explosive, as a part of the same area of interest.

His Jet fuel research integrates issues from Distillation and Jet. His work focuses on many connections between Jet and other disciplines, such as Volume, that overlap with his field of interest in Soot. He has researched Thermodynamics in several fields, including Branching, Hydrogen and Thermal decomposition.
