2020 - Fellow of American Physical Society (APS) Citation For elegant experiments that have advanced understanding of the structure and dragcausing mechanisms of wallbounded turbulent flows

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Turbulence
  • Reynolds number
  • Mechanics

His main research concerns Turbulence, Reynolds number, Boundary layer, Mechanics and Classical mechanics. His Turbulence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Amplitude modulation, Optics and Geometry. His Reynolds number study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Logarithm, Pipe flow and Turbulence kinetic energy.

His research investigates the connection with Boundary layer and areas like Statistical physics which intersect with concerns in Reynolds equation, Magnetic Reynolds number, Reynolds stress equation model, Reynolds decomposition and Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations. Nicholas Hutchins is involved in the study of Mechanics that focuses on Flow separation in particular. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Atmosphere, Large eddy simulation, Chaotic, Bounded function and Aerodynamic drag.

His most cited work include:

  • Evidence of very long meandering features in the logarithmic region of turbulent boundary layers (862 citations)
  • Large-scale amplitude modulation of the small-scale structures in turbulent boundary layers (481 citations)
  • Large-scale influences in near-wall turbulence (466 citations)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Turbulence, Mechanics, Boundary layer, Reynolds number and Boundary layer thickness. His Turbulence study incorporates themes from Geometry, Optics and Classical mechanics. His work carried out in the field of Geometry brings together such families of science as Wake and Coherence.

In general Mechanics, his work in Drag, Flow and Shear stress is often linked to Scale linking many areas of study. His research in Boundary layer intersects with topics in Particle image velocimetry and Vortex. His Reynolds number research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Pipe flow and Turbulence kinetic energy.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Turbulence (69.26%)
  • Mechanics (65.20%)
  • Boundary layer (44.26%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2019-2021)?

  • Turbulence (69.26%)
  • Mechanics (65.20%)
  • Reynolds number (42.57%)

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

His primary areas of study are Turbulence, Mechanics, Reynolds number, Surface finish and Drag. His Turbulence research incorporates themes from Geometry and Flow. His research in the fields of Boundary layer, Shear velocity, Flow and Heat transfer coefficient overlaps with other disciplines such as Momentum.

His work on Spanwise velocity as part of general Reynolds number research is frequently linked to Structure, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Surface finish course of study focuses on Boundary layer thickness and Scaling, Freestream and Plane. His research integrates issues of Open-channel flow and Instability in his study of Drag.

Between 2019 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The effect of spanwise wavelength of surface heterogeneity on turbulent secondary flows (9 citations)
  • Periodicity of large-scale coherence in turbulent boundary layers (4 citations)
  • On the mixing length eddies and logarithmic mean velocity profile in wall turbulence (4 citations)

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

  • Geometry
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Mechanics

His scientific interests lie mostly in Turbulence, Mechanics, Flow, Drag and Geometry. His study in the field of Direct numerical simulation and Reynolds number also crosses realms of Momentum. His Direct numerical simulation study combines topics in areas such as Surface finish, Boundary layer, Scalar, Heat transfer and Fluid dynamics.

The various areas that Nicholas Hutchins examines in his Reynolds number study include Mixing length model, Wake, Shear velocity and Prandtl number. His Geometry research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Boundary layer thickness, Particle image velocimetry and Coherence. His Wavelength study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Space, Energy and Surface.
