2012 - Fellow of American Physical Society (APS) Citation For the development of innovative, creative and rigorous experimental methods leading to seminal contributions to our understanding of instabilities, transitional and turbulent flows

Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Turbulence
  • Fluid dynamics

P. Henrik Alfredsson mostly deals with Turbulence, Mechanics, Reynolds number, Classical mechanics and Open-channel flow. His research integrates issues of Bounded function, Flow velocity and Boundary layer in his study of Turbulence. His studies deal with areas such as Vector field, Heat transfer and Shear stress as well as Boundary layer.

His Flow visualization and Hagen–Poiseuille equation study in the realm of Mechanics connects with subjects such as In plane. His Reynolds number study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Reynolds stress equation model, Turbulence kinetic energy and Scaling. His Classical mechanics research incorporates elements of Amplitude, Couette flow, Taylor–Couette flow and Instability.

His most cited work include:

  • The fluctuating wall‐shear stress and the velocity field in the viscous sublayer (283 citations)
  • Experiments on transition in plane Couette flow (242 citations)
  • On the structure of turbulent channel flow (240 citations)

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

P. Henrik Alfredsson mainly focuses on Mechanics, Turbulence, Classical mechanics, Boundary layer and Reynolds number. Mechanics is a component of his Open-channel flow, Laminar flow, Flow separation, Instability and Pipe flow studies. P. Henrik Alfredsson combines subjects such as Couette flow, Optics and Scaling with his study of Turbulence.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Jet, Vortex and Direct numerical simulation in addition to Classical mechanics. His Boundary layer research focuses on Shear velocity and how it relates to Law of the wall. P. Henrik Alfredsson studied Reynolds number and Amplitude that intersect with Near wall.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (80.12%)
  • Turbulence (59.06%)
  • Classical mechanics (28.07%)

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

  • Mechanics (80.12%)
  • Turbulence (59.06%)
  • Boundary layer (27.49%)

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

His primary areas of study are Mechanics, Turbulence, Boundary layer, Reynolds number and Classical mechanics. P. Henrik Alfredsson focuses mostly in the field of Mechanics, narrowing it down to topics relating to Amplitude and, in certain cases, Near wall. His studies in Turbulence integrate themes in fields like Vortex and Scaling.

His Boundary layer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Drag, Wake, Shear velocity and Cylinder. His research in Reynolds number intersects with topics in Parasitic drag, K-epsilon turbulence model and Intermittency. His work carried out in the field of Classical mechanics brings together such families of science as Secondary flow and Mathematical analysis.

Between 2012 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Outer layer turbulence intensities in smooth- and rough-wall boundary layers (40 citations)
  • Turbulent Flows in Curved Pipes: Recent Advances in Experiments and Simulations (39 citations)
  • An experimental study of edge effects on rotating-disk transition (29 citations)

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

  • Mechanics
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Turbulence

His main research concerns Mechanics, Turbulence, Boundary layer, Classical mechanics and Reynolds number. Many of his research projects under Turbulence are closely connected to Normalization with Normalization, tying the diverse disciplines of science together. His work on Boundary layer thickness as part of general Boundary layer study is frequently linked to Plasma actuator, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Turbine and Vorticity. P. Henrik Alfredsson has researched Reynolds number in several fields, including Surface finish, Geometry and Optics. His Couette flow research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Plane, Laminar flow, Rotation and Reynolds stress.
