Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Mathematical analysis
  • Thermodynamics

John H. Merkin focuses on Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Boundary layer, Natural convection and Isothermal process. His study in Mechanics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Shooting method, Cylinder, Equations of motion, Classical mechanics and Nonlinear system. The Thermodynamics study combines topics in areas such as Flow, Matrix and Reaction mechanism.

He has included themes like Combined forced and natural convection, Leading edge and Flow, Stagnation point in his Boundary layer study. His Natural convection study combines topics in areas such as Prandtl number and Similarity solution. His Isothermal process research integrates issues from Hysteresis and Autocatalysis.

His most cited work include:

  • On dual solutions occurring in mixed convection in a porous medium (348 citations)
  • A simple isothermal model for homogeneous-heterogeneous reactions in boundary-layer flow. I Equal diffusivities (187 citations)
  • Natural-convection boundary-layer flow on a vertical surface with Newtonian heating (185 citations)

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

John H. Merkin mostly deals with Thermodynamics, Mechanics, Boundary layer, Natural convection and Autocatalysis. In general Thermodynamics study, his work on Dimensionless quantity, Stagnation point, Exothermic reaction and Prandtl number often relates to the realm of Critical value, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His research brings together the fields of Porous medium and Mechanics.

John H. Merkin usually deals with Boundary layer and limits it to topics linked to Geometry and Mathematical analysis and Bifurcation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Singularity and Heat flux. The concepts of his Autocatalysis study are interwoven with issues in Traveling wave, Quadratic equation, Reaction–diffusion system and Isothermal process.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Thermodynamics (47.13%)
  • Mechanics (42.53%)
  • Boundary layer (26.05%)

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

  • Mechanics (42.53%)
  • Boundary layer (26.05%)
  • Combined forced and natural convection (15.71%)

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

John H. Merkin spends much of his time researching Mechanics, Boundary layer, Combined forced and natural convection, Thermodynamics and Flow. His study explores the link between Mechanics and topics such as Cylinder that cross with problems in Curvature and Fluid dynamics. His Boundary layer research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Natural convection, Boundary value problem, Flow, Porous medium and Slip.

His research integrates issues of Geometry, Rotational symmetry, Stagnation point flow, Forced convection and Hydrogeology in his study of Combined forced and natural convection. He undertakes interdisciplinary study in the fields of Thermodynamics and Critical value through his research. His studies in Flow integrate themes in fields like Lambda, Partial differential equation, Classical mechanics, Surface and Ordinary differential equation.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Stagnation-point flow and heat transfer over an exponentially stretching/shrinking cylinder (35 citations)
  • Unsteady mixed convection boundary-layer flow with suction and temperature slip effects near the stagnation point on a vertical permeable surface embedded in a porous medium (30 citations)
  • Mixed convection flow near the axisymmetric stagnation point on a stretching or shrinking cylinder (23 citations)

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

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Mathematical analysis
  • Thermodynamics

His primary scientific interests are in Mechanics, Flow, Combined forced and natural convection, Thermodynamics and Heat transfer. John H. Merkin works in the field of Mechanics, focusing on Natural convection in particular. His Flow study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Classical mechanics, Rotational symmetry, Partial differential equation and Ordinary differential equation.

His Combined forced and natural convection research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Prandtl number, Stagnation point and Boundary layer. His Boundary layer study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Geometry and Convection. His Thermodynamics research is mostly focused on the topic Heat transfer coefficient.
