Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Mechanical engineering

Peter Stephan mainly focuses on Heat transfer, Thermodynamics, Nucleate boiling, Mechanics and Boiling. His work carried out in the field of Heat transfer brings together such families of science as Latent heat, Temperature measurement and Composite material. Peter Stephan has researched Nucleate boiling in several fields, including Evaporation, Bubble and Heat pipe.

As a member of one scientific family, Peter Stephan mostly works in the field of Mechanics, focusing on Contact angle and, on occasion, Flow, Isothermal process and Inclined plane. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Cylinder, Jet, Quenching and Free surface. Peter Stephan works mostly in the field of Heat transfer coefficient, limiting it down to topics relating to Convective heat transfer and, in certain cases, Laminar flow.

His most cited work include:

  • Analysis of the heat transfer coefficient of grooved heat pipe evaporator walls (345 citations)
  • A new model for nucleate boiling heat transfer (199 citations)
  • CFD Simulation of Boiling Flows Using the Volume-of-Fluid Method within OpenFOAM (140 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Mechanics, Heat transfer, Thermodynamics, Evaporation and Composite material. His studies in Mechanics integrate themes in fields like Boiling and Capillary action. He studies Heat transfer, focusing on Heat flux in particular.

Nucleate boiling, Heat transfer coefficient, Critical heat flux, Convective heat transfer and Nucleation are among the areas of Thermodynamics where Peter Stephan concentrates his study. The Evaporation study combines topics in areas such as FOIL method, Chemical engineering and Marangoni effect. His Composite material research incorporates elements of Thin film, Phase-change material and Laminar flow.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (42.61%)
  • Heat transfer (42.27%)
  • Thermodynamics (32.65%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Mechanics (42.61%)
  • Heat transfer (42.27%)
  • Evaporation (19.93%)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Mechanics, Heat transfer, Evaporation, Composite material and Boiling. Within one scientific family, Peter Stephan focuses on topics pertaining to Work under Mechanics, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Interfacial thermal resistance, Thermal resistance, Condenser, Evaporator and Heat pipe. Heat transfer is a subfield of Thermodynamics that he studies.

His work on Heat transfer coefficient, Thermal and Boiling heat transfer as part of general Thermodynamics study is frequently linked to Perfluorohexane, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of science. His Evaporation research integrates issues from Contact line and Convection, Marangoni effect. His study in Boiling is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Condensation, Bubble and Critical ionization velocity.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • A comparative study of flow regimes and thermal performance between flat plate pulsating heat pipe and capillary tube pulsating heat pipe (15 citations)
  • Heat transfer during simultaneous impact of two drops onto a hot solid substrate (15 citations)
  • Solid–Liquid Interface Thermal Resistance Affects the Evaporation Rate of Droplets from a Surface: A Study of Perfluorohexane on Chromium Using Molecular Dynamics and Continuum Theory (10 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Mechanical engineering

Peter Stephan mainly investigates Mechanics, Evaporation, Composite material, Heat transfer and Drop. The study incorporates disciplines such as Capillary action and Position in addition to Mechanics. His studies deal with areas such as Convection, Marangoni effect, Length scale and Deformation as well as Evaporation.

His work carried out in the field of Composite material brings together such families of science as Heat transfer enhancement and Nucleate boiling. His work in Nucleate boiling covers topics such as Smooth surface which are related to areas like Boiling. As part of the same scientific family, Peter Stephan usually focuses on Heat transfer, concentrating on Superheating and intersecting with Heat flux, Bubble and Drop impact.
