R. Viskanta regularly ties together related areas like Porous medium in his Thermodynamics studies. He has included themes like Fin, Gas burner and Thermal science in his Convective heat transfer study. His study in Heat transfer coefficient is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Nusselt number, Reynolds number and Heat flux.

Between 1993 and 2015, his most popular works were:

  • Effect of nozzle geometry on local convective heat transfer to a confined impinging air jet (198 citations)
  • A study of the structure of submerged reaction zone in porous ceramic radiant burners (95 citations)
  • Turbulent natural convection heat transfer in an asymmetrically heated, vertical parallel-plate channel (90 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Heat transfer
  • Mechanics

R. Viskanta focuses on Heat transfer, Mechanics, Convective heat transfer, Thermodynamics and Porous medium. R. Viskanta studies Heat transfer, focusing on Heat transfer coefficient in particular. His research in Mechanics intersects with topics in Double-skin facade and Meteorology.

His Convective heat transfer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Combustion, Radiative transfer and Coolant. His Thermodynamics study is mostly concerned with Natural convection and Phase change heat transfer. His Porous medium study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Computer simulation, Numerical analysis, Cylinder and Transient.
