Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mathematical analysis

His main research concerns Composite material, Nanotechnology, Mechanics, Fracture mechanics and Plasticity. The study incorporates disciplines such as Adhesion, van der Waals force and Molecular dynamics in addition to Nanotechnology. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Shear, Speed of sound, Stress intensity factor and Strain energy release rate.

His Fracture mechanics research includes themes of Fracture toughness, Rayleigh wave, Linear elasticity and Fracture. His studies in Plasticity integrate themes in fields like Strain gradient, Indentation, Classical mechanics, Constitutive equation and Dislocation. His Classical mechanics study deals with Infinitesimal strain theory intersecting with Flow stress.

His most cited work include:

  • Indentation size effects in crystalline materials: A law for strain gradient plasticity (2889 citations)
  • Materials become insensitive to flaws at nanoscale: lessons from nature. (1342 citations)
  • Mechanism-based strain gradient plasticity— I. Theory (1291 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Composite material, Nanotechnology, Mechanics, Molecular dynamics and Fracture mechanics. His Composite material study frequently links to related topics such as Thin film. His Nanotechnology research integrates issues from Adhesion and Membrane.

His Mechanics research includes elements of Crack closure, Structural engineering and Stress intensity factor. While the research belongs to areas of Molecular dynamics, Huajian Gao spends his time largely on the problem of Carbon nanotube, intersecting his research to questions surrounding van der Waals force. As a member of one scientific family, Huajian Gao mostly works in the field of Plasticity, focusing on Dislocation and, on occasion, Nucleation.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Composite material (36.28%)
  • Nanotechnology (20.97%)
  • Mechanics (16.41%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Composite material (36.28%)
  • Nanotechnology (20.97%)
  • Deformation (9.52%)

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

Huajian Gao mainly investigates Composite material, Nanotechnology, Deformation, Graphene and Biophysics. His studies in Plasticity, Ultimate tensile strength, Deformation mechanism, Scanning electron microscope and Stress are all subfields of Composite material research. His studies deal with areas such as Crystal twinning, Partial dislocations and Nanowire as well as Plasticity.

His Nanoparticle and Nanomaterials study, which is part of a larger body of work in Nanotechnology, is frequently linked to Covalent bond, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Graphene research incorporates elements of Brittleness and Grain boundary. Huajian Gao has included themes like Molecular dynamics, Drug delivery, Membrane, Lipid bilayer and Nanomedicine in his Biophysics study.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A review on mechanics and mechanical properties of 2D materials—Graphene and beyond (396 citations)
  • A new class of synthetic retinoid antibiotics effective against bacterial persisters (139 citations)
  • Extra strengthening and work hardening in gradient nanotwinned metals. (126 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mathematical analysis

His primary scientific interests are in Composite material, Nanotechnology, Nanoparticle, Deformation and Biophysics. Much of his study explores Nanotechnology relationship to Wetting. The Deformation study combines topics in areas such as Condensed matter physics, Dislocation, Stress–strain curve and Microstructure.

His research in Dislocation intersects with topics in Copper and Twip. In his research, Slip, Plasticity, Bond energy and Shearing is intimately related to Ultimate tensile strength, which falls under the overarching field of Microstructure. The various areas that Huajian Gao examines in his Biophysics study include Elasticity, Endocytosis, Drug delivery and Integrin binding.
