What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Structural engineering

His scientific interests lie mostly in Composite material, Fracture mechanics, Stress intensity factor, Mechanics and Crack closure. In his study, Elastomer is strongly linked to Thin film, which falls under the umbrella field of Composite material. His work deals with themes such as Fiber pull-out, Fracture, Brittleness, Adhesive and Forensic engineering, which intersect with Fracture mechanics.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Plane stress, Stress–strain curve and Fissure in addition to Stress intensity factor. His research in Mechanics intersects with topics in Plasticity, Void, Finite element method, Strain hardening exponent and Shear. In his research on the topic of Crack closure, Work hardening is strongly related with Stress concentration.

His most cited work include:

  • Mixed mode cracking in layered materials (3216 citations)
  • Strain gradient plasticity: Theory and experiment (2751 citations)
  • Singular behaviour at the end of a tensile crack in a hardening material (2340 citations)

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

Composite material, Structural engineering, Mechanics, Plasticity and Fracture mechanics are his primary areas of study. His work in Composite material tackles topics such as Thin film which are related to areas like Substrate. His Mechanics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Strain hardening exponent and Void.

His Plasticity research includes elements of Strain gradient, Hardening, Classical mechanics, Constitutive equation and Deformation theory. His Fracture mechanics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Plane stress, Cracking, Fracture and Forensic engineering. His Crack closure research incorporates themes from Stress intensity factor and Stress concentration.
