  • Mechanics (41.24%)
  • Reynolds number (18.04%)
  • Lattice Boltzmann methods (5.15%)

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

Joseph C. S. Lai spends much of his time researching Mechanics, Reynolds number, Lattice Boltzmann methods, Flapping and Lift. Joseph C. S. Lai works in the field of Mechanics, focusing on Vortex in particular. Joseph C. S. Lai interconnects Stall and Vortex shedding in the investigation of issues within Vortex.

His studies in Reynolds number integrate themes in fields like Trailing edge, Immersed boundary method, Plane and Amplitude. He has researched Lattice Boltzmann methods in several fields, including Fluid dynamics, Weissenberg number, Open-channel flow and Control theory. His study on Lift also encompasses disciplines like

  • Wing together with Thrust,
  • Aerodynamics, which have a strong connection to Geometry.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A novel geometry-adaptive Cartesian grid based immersed boundary–lattice Boltzmann method for fluid–structure interactions at moderate and high Reynolds numbers (33 citations)
  • Cryptic termites avoid predatory ants by eavesdropping on vibrational cues from their footsteps (27 citations)
  • Effects of hawkmoth-like flexibility on the aerodynamic performance of flapping wings with different shapes and aspect ratios (26 citations)

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

  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Thermodynamics

His primary areas of study are Mechanics, Lift, Wing, Reynolds number and Flapping. Mechanics and Kinematics are commonly linked in his work. Within one scientific family, Joseph C. S. Lai focuses on topics pertaining to Aerodynamics under Lift, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Geometry.

His Wing research includes elements of Wing loading and Propulsion. His study in Reynolds number is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both FOIL method, Flexural rigidity, Shear rate, Torsion spring and Plane. The concepts of his Flapping study are interwoven with issues in Flow separation, Classical mechanics, Turbine, Vortex and Stall.
