Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Turbulence
  • Fluid dynamics

His primary areas of study are Mechanics, Turbulence, Boundary layer, Reynolds number and Planetary boundary layer. His Mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Surface finish, Roughness length and Optics. He has researched Turbulence in several fields, including Airflow, Geometry and Flow.

As a part of the same scientific family, Ian P. Castro mostly works in the field of Reynolds number, focusing on Aerodynamics and, on occasion, Vorticity and Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations. His Planetary boundary layer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Shear flow, Length scale and Conservative vector field. Within one scientific family, Ian P. Castro focuses on topics pertaining to Classical mechanics under Parasitic drag, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Boundary layer thickness.

His most cited work include:

  • The flow around a surface-mounted cube in uniform and turbulent streams (491 citations)
  • Near Wall Flow over Urban-like Roughness (410 citations)
  • Mean Flow and Turbulence Statistics Over Groups of Urban-like Cubical Obstacles (313 citations)

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

Mechanics, Turbulence, Boundary layer, Meteorology and Reynolds number are his primary areas of study. The study incorporates disciplines such as Surface finish and Classical mechanics in addition to Mechanics. He interconnects Flow, Wind tunnel and Optics in the investigation of issues within Turbulence.

His Boundary layer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Cube, Geometry and Shear velocity. His work on Large eddy simulation, Stratified flow and Direct numerical simulation as part of general Meteorology study is frequently linked to Atmospheric dispersion modeling, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. As a member of one scientific family, Ian P. Castro mostly works in the field of Reynolds number, focusing on Open-channel flow and, on occasion, Plane.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (67.46%)
  • Turbulence (56.80%)
  • Boundary layer (22.49%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2021)?

  • Mechanics (67.46%)
  • Turbulence (56.80%)
  • Meteorology (21.30%)

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

Ian P. Castro mainly investigates Mechanics, Turbulence, Meteorology, Classical mechanics and Large eddy simulation. His studies link Dispersion with Mechanics. His Turbulence study combines topics in areas such as Geometry, Scalar and Wind tunnel.

His work carried out in the field of Geometry brings together such families of science as Optics and Boundary layer. The various areas that Ian P. Castro examines in his Classical mechanics study include Burgers vortex, Solid body and Reynolds stress. Ian P. Castro combines subjects such as Flow and Open-channel flow with his study of Reynolds number.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Divergence-free turbulence inflow conditions for large-eddy simulations with incompressible flow solvers (63 citations)
  • Measurements and Computations of Flow in an Urban Street System (44 citations)
  • Outer layer turbulence intensities in smooth- and rough-wall boundary layers (40 citations)

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

  • Mechanics
  • Geometry
  • Fluid dynamics

Ian P. Castro focuses on Mechanics, Turbulence, Large eddy simulation, Meteorology and Classical mechanics. His Drag and Inflow investigations are all subjects of Mechanics research. His Turbulence study often links to related topics such as Geometry.

His research investigates the connection with Meteorology and areas like Flow which intersect with concerns in Surface pressure, Intensity and Inflow turbulence. The concepts of his Classical mechanics study are interwoven with issues in Turbulence modeling, K-omega turbulence model, K-epsilon turbulence model and Incompressible flow. His studies in Turbulence kinetic energy integrate themes in fields like Surface stress, Optics and Boundary layer.
