Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Structural engineering

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Composite material, Finite element method, Plasticity, Structural engineering and Constitutive equation. His research on Composite material frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Beam. His Finite element method study incorporates themes from Impulse, Deflection, Shock, Honeycomb structure and Forensic engineering.

Norman A. Fleck has included themes like Strain gradient, Infinitesimal strain theory, Geometry, Strain hardening exponent and Dislocation in his Plasticity study. His work carried out in the field of Structural engineering brings together such families of science as Elasticity and Indentation. His Constitutive equation research incorporates themes from Isotropy, Condensed matter physics and Ferroelectricity.

His most cited work include:

  • Strain gradient plasticity: Theory and experiment (2751 citations)
  • Metal Foams: A Design Guide (2190 citations)
  • Strain gradient plasticity (1561 citations)

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

Norman A. Fleck spends much of his time researching Composite material, Finite element method, Structural engineering, Ultimate tensile strength and Compressive strength. Stress, Buckling, Composite number, Toughness and Indentation are subfields of Composite material in which his conducts study. His Finite element method research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Plasticity, Beam, Metal foam, Strain hardening exponent and Deflection.

His Plasticity research incorporates elements of Strain gradient and Classical mechanics. His work in Structural engineering is not limited to one particular discipline; it also encompasses Sandwich-structured composite. His studies in Compressive strength integrate themes in fields like Delamination, Waviness, Epoxy and Compression.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Composite material (70.75%)
  • Finite element method (20.36%)
  • Structural engineering (14.62%)

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

  • Composite material (70.75%)
  • Ultimate tensile strength (14.03%)
  • Finite element method (20.36%)

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

Norman A. Fleck focuses on Composite material, Ultimate tensile strength, Finite element method, Stress and Toughness. His Composite material study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Structural engineering and Lattice. His Finite element method research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Plasticity, Hardening, Deformation, Shear strength and Ductility.

His research investigates the connection between Plasticity and topics such as Strain gradient that intersect with issues in Classical mechanics and Dissipative system. In general Stress study, his work on Stress field often relates to the realm of Blowing agent, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Toughness research includes themes of Crack growth resistance curve, Cracking, Brittleness, Fracture toughness and Coating.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The high strain rate response of Ultra High Molecular-weight Polyethylene: From fibre to laminate (110 citations)
  • The effect of shear strength on the ballistic response of laminated composite plates (89 citations)
  • The stiffness and strength of the gyroid lattice (74 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering

His primary areas of investigation include Composite material, Ultimate tensile strength, Finite element method, Structural engineering and Plasticity. His work on Composite material is being expanded to include thematically relevant topics such as Hinge. Norman A. Fleck interconnects B fracture, Stress concentration, Hardening, Shear and Stiffening in the investigation of issues within Ultimate tensile strength.

His Finite element method study combines topics in areas such as Mechanical engineering, Indentation, Micromechanics and Fracture. His studies deal with areas such as Circular hole and Tensile ductility as well as Structural engineering. His research integrates issues of Strain gradient, Nanoscopic scale, Crack growth resistance curve, Penetration and Deformation in his study of Plasticity.
