Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Turbulence
  • Mechanics

His primary areas of investigation include Turbulence, Mechanics, Reynolds number, Classical mechanics and Boundary layer. R. A. Antonia is involved in the study of Turbulence that focuses on Reynolds stress in particular. His work in Mechanics covers topics such as Optics which are related to areas like Flow visualization.

His Reynolds number research integrates issues from Reynolds stress equation model, Range, K-epsilon turbulence model and Wavenumber. His Classical mechanics research also works with subjects such as

  • Wake, which have a strong connection to Turbulence kinetic energy,
  • Probability density function, which have a strong connection to Gaussian and Intermittency. His Boundary layer thickness and Flow separation study in the realm of Boundary layer connects with subjects such as Materials science.

His most cited work include:

  • Rough-Wall Turbulent Boundary Layers (1027 citations)
  • THE PHENOMENOLOGY OF SMALL-SCALE TURBULENCE (946 citations)
  • High-order velocity structure functions in turbulent shear flows (789 citations)

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

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Turbulence, Mechanics, Reynolds number, Classical mechanics and Boundary layer. R. A. Antonia works in the field of Turbulence, focusing on Reynolds stress in particular. His study in the field of Vorticity, Shear flow and Heat flux is also linked to topics like Materials science.

His work in Reynolds number addresses issues such as Statistical physics, which are connected to fields such as K-epsilon turbulence model. He works mostly in the field of Classical mechanics, limiting it down to topics relating to Pipe flow and, in certain cases, Open-channel flow, as a part of the same area of interest. His Boundary layer study incorporates themes from Geometry and Optics.

  • Turbulence (71.36%)
  • Reynolds number (37.02%)
  • Mechanics (61.64%)

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

R. A. Antonia mainly focuses on Turbulence, Reynolds number, Mechanics, Taylor microscale and Turbulence kinetic energy. R. A. Antonia has included themes like Statistical physics, Dissipation, Isotropy, Convection–diffusion equation and Scaling in his Turbulence study. R. A. Antonia interconnects Constant, Mathematical analysis and Dissipative system in the investigation of issues within Reynolds number.

Mechanics is often connected to Classical mechanics in his work. His research in Classical mechanics intersects with topics in Wavenumber and Advection. In his work, Shear velocity, Particle image velocimetry, Drag, Turbulent diffusion and Optics is strongly intertwined with Boundary layer, which is a subfield of Turbulence kinetic energy.

Between 2011 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Active control of a turbulent boundary layer based on local surface perturbation (46 citations)
  • Boundedness of the velocity derivative skewness in various turbulent flows (31 citations)
  • Consequences of self-preservation on the axis of a turbulent round jet (31 citations)

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

  • Quantum mechanics
