Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Heat transfer
  • Optics

Thermodynamics, Evaporation, Wetting, Heat transfer and Capillary condensation are his primary areas of study. In general Thermodynamics study, his work on Fluid dynamics and Young–Laplace equation often relates to the realm of Intermolecular force, thereby connecting several areas of interest. His Evaporation study also includes fields such as

  • Disjoining pressure that connect with fields like Pressure gradient and Flat glass,
  • Heat transfer coefficient together with Adsorption and Clausius–Clapeyron relation.

His research in Wetting focuses on subjects like Capillary action, which are connected to Thin film, Octane and Physical chemistry. Peter C. Wayner is interested in Heat flux, which is a field of Heat transfer. His study looks at the intersection of Capillary condensation and topics like Mechanics with Drop, Stress field and Surface energy.

His most cited work include:

  • The interline heat-transfer coefficient of an evaporating wetting film (332 citations)
  • Evaporation from a two-dimensional extended meniscus (326 citations)
  • Investigation of an evaporating extended meniscus based on the augmented Young-Laplace equation (124 citations)

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

Peter C. Wayner mostly deals with Thermodynamics, Heat transfer, Mechanics, Evaporation and Wetting. The study of Thermodynamics is intertwined with the study of Interfacial Force in a number of ways. His Mechanics research includes elements of Drop and Capillary action.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Wetting, Surface finish and Nanotechnology in addition to Evaporation.

His Heat pipe research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Fin, International Space Station, Heat transfer coefficient and Meteorology. Peter C. Wayner combines subjects such as Surface tension, Capillary condensation, Vapor pressure and Nucleation with his study of Heat transfer. His Capillary action study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Disjoining pressure and Optics.

Between 2007 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • REVIEW OF THE EFFECTS OF SURFACE TOPOGRAPHY, SURFACE CHEMISTRY, AND FLUID PHYSICS ON EVAPORATION AT THE CONTACT LINE (78 citations)
  • Comprehensive experimental and theoretical study of fluid flow and heat transfer in a microscopic evaporating meniscus in a miniature heat exchanger (63 citations)
  • Role of solid surface structure on evaporative phase change from a completely wetting corner meniscus (31 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Heat transfer
  • Optics

Peter C. Wayner spends much of his time researching Heat pipe, Thermodynamics, Mechanics, Capillary action and Wetting. His research combines Thin film and Thermodynamics. His Mechanics research incorporates elements of Limiting, Boiling and Thermal.

Peter C. Wayner works mostly in the field of Capillary action, limiting it down to topics relating to Disjoining pressure and, in certain cases, Chemical physics, as a part of the same area of interest. His studies examine the connections between Wetting and genetics, as well as such issues in Surface finish, with regards to Nanotechnology, Contact angle, Surface roughness and Evaporation. The Heat transfer study which covers Capillary condensation that intersects with Suction, Fluid dynamics, Mass flow, Capillary pressure and Heat flux.
