Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Heat transfer
  • Mechanics

His main research concerns Thermodynamics, Heat transfer, Mechanics, Porous medium and Heat transfer coefficient. His work in Nusselt number, Convection, Nanofluid, Reynolds number and Heat flux are all subfields of Thermodynamics research. His research in Nanofluid intersects with topics in Natural convection, Turbulence, Heat transfer enhancement and Grashof number.

His work carried out in the field of Heat transfer brings together such families of science as Flow, Thermal conductivity, Thermal diffusivity and Viscosity. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Work, Thermal equilibrium, Darcy number, Boundary value problem and Inertia. Kambiz Vafai interconnects Porosity, Composite material, Convective heat transfer and Heat pipe in the investigation of issues within Heat transfer coefficient.

His most cited work include:

  • BUOYANCY-DRIVEN HEAT TRANSFER ENHANCEMENT IN A TWO-DIMENSIONAL ENCLOSURE UTILIZING NANOFLUIDS (1998 citations)
  • Handbook of porous media (1252 citations)
  • Boundary and inertia effects on flow and heat transfer in porous media (1205 citations)

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

Mechanics, Heat transfer, Thermodynamics, Porous medium and Nusselt number are his primary areas of study. His Mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Boundary value problem and Classical mechanics. His studies in Heat transfer integrate themes in fields like Thermal conduction, Thermal conductivity and Composite material.

Thermodynamics is represented through his Heat flux, Work, Forced convection, Heat pipe and Mass transfer research. His Porous medium research integrates issues from Fluid dynamics, Chemical engineering, Thermal equilibrium and Darcy number. His Nusselt number research includes elements of Combined forced and natural convection, Annulus, Flow and Buoyancy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (54.09%)
  • Heat transfer (46.15%)
  • Thermodynamics (37.47%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Mechanics (54.09%)
  • Heat transfer (46.15%)
  • Porous medium (29.28%)

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

Kambiz Vafai focuses on Mechanics, Heat transfer, Porous medium, Porosity and Nanofluid. As part of one scientific family, he deals mainly with the area of Mechanics, narrowing it down to issues related to the Boundary value problem, and often Flow. His Heat transfer study is concerned with the larger field of Thermodynamics.

He has researched Porous medium in several fields, including Fluid dynamics, Inlet and Tortuosity. His research investigates the connection between Porosity and topics such as Thermal that intersect with problems in Thermal efficiency. His Nanofluid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Heat exchanger and Heat transfer enhancement.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • On boundary layer nano-ferroliquid flow under the influence of low oscillating stretchable rotating disk (167 citations)
  • A review on the applications of nanofluids in solar energy field (137 citations)
  • Numerical investigation and sensitivity analysis of effective parameters on combined heat transfer performance in a porous solar cavity receiver by response surface methodology (73 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Heat transfer

His primary scientific interests are in Mechanics, Heat transfer, Nanofluid, Thermal conductivity and Reynolds number. His Mechanics research incorporates elements of Tube and Boundary value problem. His Heat transfer study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Thermodynamics.

His Nanofluid study incorporates themes from Pressure drop and Convective heat transfer. His study in Reynolds number is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Streamlines, streaklines, and pathlines and Composite material. His biological study deals with issues like Annular fin, which deal with fields such as Porous medium.
