Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Electrical engineering
  • Mechanics
  • Mechanical engineering

His primary scientific interests are in Mechanics, Vortex, Classical mechanics, Wake and Reynolds number. The various areas that he examines in his Mechanics study include Vibration, Cylinder and Thrust. His Thrust research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Angle of attack, Propulsion, Flow visualization and Optics.

His studies in Vortex integrate themes in fields like Computational fluid dynamics, Vortex shedding, Shear flow, Trout and Kármán vortex street. His research integrates issues of Turbulence and Oscillation in his study of Classical mechanics. Instability and Orr–Sommerfeld equation is closely connected to Inviscid flow in his research, which is encompassed under the umbrella topic of Wake.

His most cited work include:

  • Oscillating foils of high propulsive efficiency (926 citations)
  • An Efficient Swimming Machine (730 citations)
  • Hydrodynamics of Fishlike Swimming (606 citations)

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

Michael S. Triantafyllou spends much of his time researching Mechanics, Vortex, Vibration, Wake and Acoustics. His Mechanics research incorporates themes from Cylinder and Classical mechanics. His research in Vortex intersects with topics in Shear flow, Kármán vortex street, Flow and Optics.

His Vibration research integrates issues from Chaotic and Harmonic. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Thrust under Wake, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Propulsion. His work in Acoustics tackles topics such as Microelectromechanical systems which are related to areas like Piezoresistive effect.

He most often published in these fields:
