Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Reynolds number

Kerry Hourigan spends much of his time researching Reynolds number, Mechanics, Classical mechanics, Vortex and Wake. His Reynolds number research incorporates themes from Cylinder, Flow, Vorticity and Amplitude. His studies deal with areas such as Marginal stability and Rotation as well as Cylinder.

His Mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Transverse plane and Vibration. Kerry Hourigan interconnects Drag, Drag coefficient, Kármán vortex street and Cylinder in the investigation of issues within Classical mechanics. The study incorporates disciplines such as Particle image velocimetry, Flow visualization, Laminar flow and Vortex shedding in addition to Vortex.

His most cited work include:

  • Wake transition of a rolling sphere (319 citations)
  • Three-dimensional instabilities in the wake of a circular cylinder (229 citations)
  • A review of the developments of characteristics of PEI derivatives for gene delivery applications (150 citations)

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

Kerry Hourigan focuses on Mechanics, Reynolds number, Vortex, Wake and Classical mechanics. As part of one scientific family, Kerry Hourigan deals mainly with the area of Mechanics, narrowing it down to issues related to the Cylinder, and often Rotation. Kerry Hourigan focuses mostly in the field of Reynolds number, narrowing it down to topics relating to Amplitude and, in certain cases, Vibration.

His studies in Vortex integrate themes in fields like Laminar flow, Optics, Flow visualization and Bubble. His Wake course of study focuses on Drag and Lift. His research investigates the connection between Vortex shedding and topics such as Trailing edge that intersect with problems in Leading edge.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (71.43%)
  • Reynolds number (34.34%)
  • Vortex (32.69%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2012-2021)?

  • Mechanics (71.43%)
  • Reynolds number (34.34%)
  • Vortex (32.69%)

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

His primary areas of study are Mechanics, Reynolds number, Vortex, Wake and Vortex-induced vibration. His study in Mechanics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cylinder, Rotation and Classical mechanics. His Reynolds number research includes themes of Flow, Plane, Drag and Cylinder.

Kerry Hourigan specializes in Vortex, namely Vorticity. His research in Wake intersects with topics in Body force and Rotational symmetry. His Vortex-induced vibration research incorporates elements of Transverse plane and Flow velocity.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A review of the developments of characteristics of PEI derivatives for gene delivery applications (150 citations)
  • Cardiogenesis of Embryonic Stem Cells with Liquid Marble Micro‐Bioreactor (69 citations)
  • Flow Characterization of a Spinner Flask for Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Culture Application (54 citations)

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

  • Mechanics
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Mechanical engineering

Kerry Hourigan mainly investigates Mechanics, Reynolds number, Wake, Cylinder and Rotation. The concepts of his Mechanics study are interwoven with issues in Amplitude and Classical mechanics. A large part of his Reynolds number studies is devoted to Strouhal number.

His study explores the link between Strouhal number and topics such as Freestream that cross with problems in Lift. His Wake research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cylinder and Rotational symmetry. Kerry Hourigan combines subjects such as Marginal stability and Instability with his study of Cylinder.
