Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Optics

His primary areas of study are Composite material, Structural engineering, Fracture mechanics, Mechanics and Crack closure. His work on Fracture, Buckling and Wrinkle as part of general Composite material research is frequently linked to Coalescence, bridging the gap between disciplines. His research in the fields of Stress intensity factor overlaps with other disciplines such as Implosion and Numerical stability.

His Fracture mechanics research includes themes of Brittleness and Fracture toughness. His Mechanics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fluid–structure interaction and Longitudinal wave. His studies in Crack closure integrate themes in fields like Mixed mode, Mode coupling, Shearing and Stress concentration.

His most cited work include:

  • An experimental investigation into dynamic fracture: III. On steady-state crack propagation and crack branching (424 citations)
  • An experimental investigation into dynamic fracture: I. Crack initiation and arrest (366 citations)
  • An experimental investigation into dynamic fracture: II. Microstructural aspects (294 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Composite material, Mechanics, Fracture mechanics, Structural engineering and Fracture. Krishnaswa Ravi-Chandar has included themes like Constitutive equation and Nucleation in his Composite material study. His research investigates the connection between Constitutive equation and topics such as Solid mechanics that intersect with problems in Viscoelasticity.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Stress, Stress field, Necking, Brittleness and Transient in addition to Mechanics. The Fracture mechanics study combines topics in areas such as Fracture toughness, Fissure and Brittle fracture. He has researched Crack closure in several fields, including Boundary element method, Stress intensity factor and Stress concentration.

  • Nucleation (9.40%)

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

Krishnaswa Ravi-Chandar focuses on Composite material, Fracture, Nucleation, Mechanics and Structural engineering. His research on Composite material frequently links to adjacent areas such as Strain. His Fracture study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Crack initiation and Computational mechanics.

His Mechanics study incorporates themes from Longitudinal wave, Geotechnical engineering, Phase and Brittle fracture. His Structural engineering research includes elements of Grain size, Aluminium and Crystallite. He interconnects Crack closure, Crack growth resistance curve and Crack tip opening displacement in the investigation of issues within Boundary element method.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Ductile failure under combined shear and tension (119 citations)
  • The Sandia Fracture Challenge: blind round robin predictions of ductile tearing (84 citations)
  • Dynamic crushing of aluminum foams: Part I – Experiments (79 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Optics

Composite material, Structural engineering, Fracture, Length scale and Mechanics are his primary areas of study. Many of his studies involve connections with topics such as Hyperelastic material and Composite material. His work on Fluid–structure interaction as part of general Structural engineering research is often related to Underwater, thus linking different fields of science.

His work on Ductile tearing as part of general Fracture study is frequently linked to Benchmark, bridging the gap between disciplines. His research in Length scale tackles topics such as Nucleation which are related to areas like Fracture toughness, Surface roughness, Plane stress and Crack closure. His Mechanics research includes themes of Geotechnical engineering and Longitudinal wave.
