The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Turbulence, Combustion, Mechanics, Large eddy simulation and Diffusion flame. His Turbulence research integrates issues from Statistical physics, Probability density function and Scalar. His Combustion study contributes to a more complete understanding of Organic chemistry.

His Mechanics study incorporates themes from Laminar flame speed, Premixed flame, Meteorology and Analytical chemistry. His Large eddy simulation study combines topics in areas such as Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations, Flow velocity, Computer simulation, Convection–diffusion equation and Homogeneous isotropic turbulence. His research in Diffusion flame intersects with topics in Soot, Jet, Thermodynamics and Flame structure.

His most cited work include:

  • LARGE-EDDY SIMULATION OF TURBULENT COMBUSTION (811 citations)
  • An efficient error-propagation-based reduction method for large chemical kinetic mechanisms (429 citations)
  • High order conservative finite difference scheme for variable density low Mach number turbulent flows (393 citations)

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

Mechanics, Combustion, Turbulence, Thermodynamics and Large eddy simulation are his primary areas of study. In his study, Flame structure is strongly linked to Premixed flame, which falls under the umbrella field of Mechanics. His primary area of study in Combustion is in the field of Soot.

His research integrates issues of Jet, Scalar and Dissipation in his study of Turbulence. Heinz Pitsch has researched Thermodynamics in several fields, including Organic chemistry and Kinetic energy. His Large eddy simulation study improves the overall literature in Meteorology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (36.28%)
  • Combustion (33.87%)
  • Turbulence (27.61%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Combustion (33.87%)
  • Mechanics (36.28%)
  • Turbulence (27.61%)

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

Heinz Pitsch mostly deals with Combustion, Mechanics, Turbulence, Laminar flow and Ignition system. He does research in Combustion, focusing on Soot specifically. His Instability study in the realm of Mechanics interacts with subjects such as Context.

His Turbulence study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Jet and Dissipation. His Laminar flow research focuses on Curvature and how it relates to Kernel. His research investigates the link between Thermodynamics and topics such as Sensitivity that cross with problems in Elementary reaction.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Impact of exhaust gas recirculation on ignition delay times of gasoline fuel: An experimental and modeling study (24 citations)
  • Detailed kinetic modeling of dimethoxymethane. Part II: Experimental and theoretical study of the kinetics and reaction mechanism (19 citations)
  • Characteristic patterns of thermodiffusively unstable premixed lean hydrogen flames (17 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Statistics
  • Organic chemistry

His primary scientific interests are in Combustion, Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Ignition system and Laminar flow. His Combustion research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Cyclopentanol, Reactivity, Hydrocarbon, Methane and Mole fraction. His work on Turbulence and Instability as part of general Mechanics research is frequently linked to Context, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His research on Turbulence focuses in particular on Direct numerical simulation. His work deals with themes such as Kinetic energy and Sensitivity, which intersect with Thermodynamics. His Ignition system research includes elements of Dimethyl ether, Heptane, Flame structure, Diesel fuel and Compression.
