Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Polymer
  • Mechanics

Mechanics, Rheology, Viscoelasticity, Shear flow and Classical mechanics are his primary areas of study. His study in Mechanics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Optics and Magnetosphere particle motion. His work deals with themes such as Flow, Soft matter and Liquid crystal, which intersect with Rheology.

The concepts of his Viscoelasticity study are interwoven with issues in Microfluidics, Dimensionless quantity, Particle size, Non-Newtonian fluid and Scaling. The study incorporates disciplines such as Microchannel and Volumetric flow rate in addition to Dimensionless quantity. His Shear flow research incorporates elements of Shear, Phenomenological model, Drop and Isothermal process.

His most cited work include:

  • Equation of change for ellipsoidal drops in viscous flow (273 citations)
  • A description of the liquid-crystalline phase of rodlike polymers at high shear rates (247 citations)
  • Quantifying dispersion of layered nanocomposites via melt rheology (206 citations)

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

Pier Luca Maffettone mostly deals with Mechanics, Viscoelasticity, Rheology, Newtonian fluid and Shear flow. His Mechanics research includes themes of Finite element method, Constitutive equation and Magnetosphere particle motion. He interconnects Flow, Microfluidics, Viscosity, Volumetric flow rate and Classical mechanics in the investigation of issues within Viscoelasticity.

In his research, Liquid crystal is intimately related to Polymer, which falls under the overarching field of Rheology. His Newtonian fluid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Non-Newtonian fluid, Suspension, Generalized Newtonian fluid and Slip. The Shear flow study which covers Drop that intersects with Pressure drop.

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Microfluidics, Holography, Digital holography, Mechanics and Optics. As a member of one scientific family, Pier Luca Maffettone mostly works in the field of Microfluidics, focusing on Rotation and, on occasion, Suspension. His Mechanics research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Finite element method, Constitutive equation and Viscoelasticity.

His Viscoelasticity study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Elasticity, Rheology, Train, Viscosity and Elastic energy. His Rheology research includes elements of Flow and Biomaterial. His studies in Optics integrate themes in fields like Visualization and Liquid film.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Full-angle tomographic phase microscopy of flowing quasi-spherical cells. (47 citations)
  • Full-angle tomographic phase microscopy of flowing quasi-spherical cells. (47 citations)
  • Fluid Viscoelasticity Drives Self-Assembly of Particle Trains in a Straight Microfluidic Channel (17 citations)

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

  • Polymer
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics

His main research concerns Mechanics, Microfluidics, Microchannel, Flow and Viscoelasticity. His Newtonian fluid study, which is part of a larger body of work in Mechanics, is frequently linked to Gas dynamic cold spray, bridging the gap between disciplines. His work investigates the relationship between Microfluidics and topics such as Rotation that intersect with problems in Optics, Characterization, Suspension and Refractive index.

His Microchannel study combines topics in areas such as Microreactor, Shear flow and Finite element method. His Viscoelasticity study incorporates themes from Elasticity, Elastic energy, Inertial frame of reference and Bubble. His research in Polymer focuses on subjects like Rheology, which are connected to Flow conditions.
