His research in Coal intersects with topics in Carbon sequestration and Permeability.

His Permeability research incorporates elements of Porosity and Overburden pressure. His studies in Acoustic emission integrate themes in fields like Ultimate failure, Moisture, Shear, Strain rate and Crack closure. His work deals with themes such as Cementitious, Mineralogy and Dissipation, which intersect with Compressive strength.

His most cited work include:

  • A review of studies on CO2 sequestration and caprock integrity (263 citations)
  • An experimental investigation on thermal damage and failure mechanical behavior of granite after exposure to different high temperature treatments (191 citations)
  • An experimental investigation on thermal damage and failure mechanical behavior of granite after exposure to different high temperature treatments (191 citations)

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

Pathegama Gamage Ranjith focuses on Geotechnical engineering, Composite material, Coal, Permeability and Coal mining. His research integrates issues of Shear, Stress and Elastic modulus in his study of Geotechnical engineering. He interconnects Carbon sequestration and Petroleum engineering in the investigation of issues within Coal.

Within one scientific family, Pathegama Gamage Ranjith focuses on topics pertaining to Petroleum reservoir under Permeability, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Aquifer. His Coal mining study combines topics in areas such as Chemical engineering and Supercritical fluid. His research in Compressive strength intersects with topics in Mineralogy and Cement.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Geotechnical engineering (31.94%)
  • Composite material (24.63%)
  • Coal (21.50%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2018-2021)?

  • Composite material (24.63%)
  • Coal (21.50%)
  • Permeability (21.92%)

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

His primary areas of study are Composite material, Coal, Permeability, Coal mining and Petroleum engineering. His work in Composite material tackles topics such as Rock mass classification which are related to areas like Joint angle and Cracking. His Coal research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Chemical engineering and Supercritical fluid.

His research on Permeability also deals with topics like

  • Overburden pressure which connect with Supercritical carbon dioxide and Effective stress,
  • Porosity, which have a strong connection to Soil science. His Petroleum engineering research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Carbon sequestration and Fracture. Pathegama Gamage Ranjith studied Brittleness and Oil shale that intersect with Mineralogy.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effects of thermal treatment on physico-morphological properties of Indian fine-grained sandstone (36 citations)
  • Petrological and ultrasonic velocity changes of coals caused by thermal cycling of liquid carbon dioxide in coalbed methane recovery (26 citations)
  • Effect of coal maturity on CO2-based hydraulic fracturing process in coal seam gas reservoirs (25 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering

His main research concerns Coal, Composite material, Coal mining, Bituminous coal and Supercritical fluid. The Coal study combines topics in areas such as Fracture mechanics, Compressive strength, Chemical engineering and Overburden pressure. As a part of the same scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Overburden pressure, focusing on Unconventional oil and, on occasion, Primary energy, Electricity generation and Geotechnical engineering.

His study on Composite material is mostly dedicated to connecting different topics, such as Rock engineering. Pathegama Gamage Ranjith has researched Coal mining in several fields, including Permeability, Petroleum engineering, Porous medium, Moisture and Borehole. In his study, Mineralogy is inextricably linked to Hydraulic fracturing, which falls within the broad field of Permeability.
