2018 - Fellow of the Combustion Institute for brilliant research on the structure of turbulent flames through careful measurements in laboratory burners and practical combustors

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Fluid dynamics

James F. Driscoll focuses on Mechanics, Turbulence, Analytical chemistry, Jet and Premixed flame. His Mechanics research includes elements of Combustor, Laminar flame speed and Fuel injection. His work on Scramjet and Ramjet as part of general Combustor research is frequently linked to Helmholtz resonator, bridging the gap between disciplines.

As part of one scientific family, James F. Driscoll deals mainly with the area of Turbulence, narrowing it down to issues related to the Bunsen burner, and often Markstein number, Direct numerical simulation and Surface. His Premixed flame study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Diffusion flame, Flame structure, Eddy, Vorticity and Thermodynamics. In his work, Mixing is strongly intertwined with Reynolds number, which is a subfield of Laminar flow.

His most cited work include:

  • Turbulent premixed combustion: Flamelet structure and its effect on turbulent burning velocities (503 citations)
  • Paradigms in turbulent combustion research (246 citations)
  • Combustion characteristics of a dual-mode scramjet combustor with cavity flameholder (220 citations)

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

Mechanics, Turbulence, Combustor, Aerospace engineering and Premixed flame are his primary areas of study. His Mechanics study typically links adjacent topics like Analytical chemistry. His study in Turbulence is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Rayleigh scattering and Classical mechanics.

His work carried out in the field of Combustor brings together such families of science as Airflow, Fuel injection, Instability, Thrust and Injector. As part of the same scientific family, James F. Driscoll usually focuses on Aerospace engineering, concentrating on Scramjet and intersecting with Ramjet and Computational fluid dynamics. Adiabatic flame temperature and Thermodynamics is closely connected to Diffusion flame in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Premixed flame.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (56.74%)
  • Turbulence (34.42%)
  • Combustor (26.05%)

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

  • Mechanics (56.74%)
  • Combustor (26.05%)
  • Turbulence (34.42%)

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

His main research concerns Mechanics, Combustor, Turbulence, Aerospace engineering and Mach number. His work on Mechanics is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Shock. His research integrates issues of Convection, Plenum space and Analytical chemistry in his study of Combustor.

His studies deal with areas such as Flame structure, Bunsen burner, Work and Laminar flow as well as Turbulence. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Aerospace engineering, Static pressure and Ramjet is strongly linked to Scramjet. In general Premixed flame study, his work on Laminar flame speed often relates to the realm of Methane, thereby connecting several areas of interest.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Ram-Scram Transition and Flame/Shock-Train Interactions in a Model Scramjet Experiment (99 citations)
  • Combustion instability of a lean premixed prevaporized gas turbine combustor studied using phase-averaged PIV (75 citations)
  • Premixed flames subjected to extreme levels of turbulence part I: Flame structure and a new measured regime diagram (70 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Fluid dynamics

James F. Driscoll mainly investigates Mechanics, Turbulence, Combustor, Laminar flow and Scramjet. His Mechanics study frequently intersects with other fields, such as Meteorology. His Turbulence research includes elements of Reaction layer, Bunsen burner, Work, Flame structure and Analytical chemistry.

His Combustor research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hypersonic speed, Propulsion and Plenum space. His work in Laminar flow covers topics such as Turbulence kinetic energy which are related to areas like Eddy. The concepts of his Scramjet study are interwoven with issues in Acceleration, Aerospace engineering and Ramjet.
