Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Structural engineering

Paul M. Weaver mostly deals with Structural engineering, Finite element method, Morphing, Composite material and Buckling. His Structural engineering research includes themes of Composite number, Boundary value problem and Bistability. Paul M. Weaver interconnects Residual stress, Bending stiffness, Nyström method, Planform and Nonlinear system in the investigation of issues within Finite element method.

The concepts of his Morphing study are interwoven with issues in Trailing edge, Aerodynamics, Multistability, Actuator and Camber. His studies in Composite material integrate themes in fields like Displacement, Flutter and Strain energy. His study in Buckling is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Rayleigh–Ritz method, Aspect ratio and Lamination.

His most cited work include:

  • Piezoelectric and ferroelectric materials and structures for energy harvesting applications (535 citations)
  • Green composites: A review of material attributes and complementary applications (285 citations)
  • Sustainable Technology Development (265 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Structural engineering, Composite material, Buckling, Finite element method and Composite number. Paul M. Weaver is interested in Stiffness, which is a field of Structural engineering. His study on Composite laminates is often connected to Variable angle as part of broader study in Composite material.

His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Flexural strength, Orthotropic material, Boundary value problem, Compression and Anisotropy. Paul M. Weaver focuses mostly in the field of Finite element method, narrowing it down to matters related to Nyström method and, in some cases, Differential equation. His Morphing study combines topics in areas such as Trailing edge, Aerodynamics, Mechanical engineering, Airfoil and Bistability.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Structural engineering (37.59%)
  • Composite material (22.79%)
  • Buckling (19.74%)

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

  • Structural engineering (37.59%)
  • Finite element method (19.74%)
  • Buckling (19.74%)

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

Structural engineering, Finite element method, Buckling, Stiffness and Composite material are his primary areas of study. His Structural engineering research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Composite number, Degrees of freedom and Curvilinear coordinates. His work carried out in the field of Finite element method brings together such families of science as Mathematical analysis, Beam, Stress, Morphing and Nonlinear system.

His research in Buckling intersects with topics in Modal, Compression and Reduction. His studies deal with areas such as Ritz method, Material properties, Pressure vessel, Shell and Lamination as well as Stiffness. His study explores the link between Composite material and topics such as Laser assisted that cross with problems in Consolidation and Thermosetting polymer.

Between 2018 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A study of the influence of processing parameters on steering of carbon Fibre/PEEK tapes using laser-assisted tape placement (28 citations)
  • Postbuckling optimisation of a variable angle tow composite wingbox using a multi-modal Koiter approach (27 citations)
  • Large deflection of functionally graded porous beams based on a geometrically exact theory with a fully intrinsic formulation (15 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Electrical engineering

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Finite element method, Structural engineering, Stiffness, Composite material and Mathematical analysis. His Finite element method research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Nyström method, Stress, Curvature and Degrees of freedom. His specific area of interest is Structural engineering, where Paul M. Weaver studies Buckling.

He combines subjects such as Beam and Shell with his study of Stiffness. His work deals with themes such as Discretization, Direct integration of a beam, Boundary value problem and Nonlinear system, which intersect with Beam. His work in Composite number addresses issues such as Aerospace, which are connected to fields such as Mechanical engineering and Morphing.
