2003 - Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering (UK)

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering

Michael Adams mainly investigates Mechanics, Agglomerate, Composite material, Contact mechanics and Tribology. His Mechanics research incorporates themes from Contact angle, Thermodynamics, Viscoplasticity and Classical mechanics. Michael Adams has researched Classical mechanics in several fields, including Wetting and Capillary bridges.

His Agglomerate research includes themes of Granular material, Compaction, Fracture and Mineralogy. His study in Composite material is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cylinder and Water content. His Contact mechanics research includes elements of Adhesion, Annulus, Mechanism, Vibration and Simulation.

His most cited work include:

  • A Theoretical Study of the Liquid Bridge Forces between Two Rigid Spherical Bodies (495 citations)
  • Capillary Bridges between Two Spherical Bodies (365 citations)
  • Discrete particle-continuum fluid modelling of gas–solid fluidised beds (323 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Composite material, Mechanics, Workflow, Business process and Software engineering. His Mechanics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Viscoplasticity, Classical mechanics, Contact area and Contact mechanics. His Classical mechanics research integrates issues from Work and Capillary action, Capillary bridges.

His Workflow study combines topics in areas such as Service-oriented architecture, Service and Flexibility. His Business process research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Risk analysis and Systems engineering. His Agglomerate study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Compression and Fracture.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Composite material (31.44%)
  • Mechanics (18.78%)
  • Workflow (13.54%)

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

  • Composite material (31.44%)
  • Mechanics (18.78%)
  • Business process management (8.73%)

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

Michael Adams focuses on Composite material, Mechanics, Business process management, Discrete element method and Business process. Composite material is often connected to Nanotechnology in his work. The various areas that Michael Adams examines in his Mechanics study include Vibration, Acoustics, Contact area and Contact mechanics.

His studies deal with areas such as Process modeling, Workflow engine and Process management as well as Business process management. His Discrete element method study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Computational fluid dynamics, Contact electrification and Classical mechanics. He works mostly in the field of Adhesion, limiting it down to topics relating to Dispersion and, in certain cases, Agglomerate and Work, as a part of the same area of interest.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Finger pad friction and its role in grip and touch (163 citations)
  • Mechanical properties of alginate hydrogels manufactured using external gelation. (86 citations)
  • Current Research in Risk-Aware Business Process Management – Overview, Comparison, and Gap Analysis (55 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Thermodynamics

His primary areas of investigation include Composite material, Discrete element method, Mechanics, Contact area and Electrostatics. His research in Composite material tackles topics such as Nanotechnology which are related to areas like Elastomer. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Discrete element method, Contact electrification is strongly linked to Classical mechanics.

His Vibration research extends to Mechanics, which is thematically connected. Slip, Tribology and Normal force is closely connected to Contact mechanics in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Contact area. Michael Adams combines subjects such as Pressure drop and Fluidization with his study of Agglomerate.
