Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Ecology

John C. Patterson mainly focuses on Mechanics, Natural convection, Boundary layer, Heat transfer and Meteorology. His Mechanics research includes themes of Thermal and Thermodynamics. His study on Combined forced and natural convection is often connected to Enclosure as part of broader study in Natural convection.

His Boundary layer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Rayleigh scattering, Optics, Leading edge and Prandtl number. His studies in Heat transfer integrate themes in fields like Nusselt number and Finite volume method. He has included themes like Periodic forcing, Internal heating and Buoyancy in his Meteorology study.

His most cited work include:

  • Unsteady natural convection in a rectangular cavity (457 citations)
  • A DYNAMIC RESERVOIR SIMULATION MODEL - DYRESM: 5 (269 citations)
  • Transient features of natural convection in a cavity (151 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Mechanics, Natural convection, Boundary layer, Heat transfer and Thermodynamics. His Mechanics research integrates issues from Thermal and Meteorology. His studies deal with areas such as Instability, Prandtl number and Scaling as well as Natural convection.

His research in the fields of Boundary layer thickness overlaps with other disciplines such as Boundary value problem. His work deals with themes such as Nusselt number, Computer simulation and Flow visualization, which intersect with Heat transfer. The Rayleigh number study combines topics in areas such as Fin, Rayleigh scattering, Annular fin and Aspect ratio.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (85.71%)
  • Natural convection (72.62%)
  • Boundary layer (51.19%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2013-2021)?

  • Mechanics (85.71%)
  • Natural convection (72.62%)
  • Boundary layer (51.19%)

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

His main research concerns Mechanics, Natural convection, Boundary layer, Rayleigh number and Thermal. His Mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Meteorology and Optics. His Natural convection study combines Convection and Thermodynamics studies.

John C. Patterson combines subjects such as Heat flux, Turbulence, Curvature, Direct numerical simulation and Scaling with his study of Boundary layer. His work in Thermal addresses issues such as Forcing, which are connected to fields such as Radiative cooling and Radiative transfer. His biological study deals with issues like Nusselt number, which deal with fields such as Fin.

Between 2013 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Natural convection in a differentially heated cavity with two horizontal adiabatic fins on the sidewalls (36 citations)
  • Plume separation from an adiabatic horizontal thin fin placed at different heights on the sidewall of a differentially heated cavity (16 citations)
  • Natural transition in natural convection boundary layers (14 citations)

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

  • Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Ecology

His scientific interests lie mostly in Mechanics, Natural convection, Boundary layer, Rayleigh number and Optics. His study ties his expertise on Thermal together with the subject of Mechanics. Many of his studies on Natural convection apply to Plume as well.

His study focuses on the intersection of Boundary layer and fields such as Particle image velocimetry with connections in the field of Transition point, Amplitude and Wavenumber. His work in Rayleigh number tackles topics such as Rayleigh scattering which are related to areas like Fully developed, Meteorology and Annular fin. The concepts of his Heat transfer study are interwoven with issues in Nusselt number, Fin and Fin.
