Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Electrical engineering

His primary areas of investigation include Mechanics, Reynolds number, Immersed boundary method, Classical mechanics and Thrust. He interconnects Geometry, Aerodynamics and Shear stress in the investigation of issues within Reynolds number. His Immersed boundary method research integrates issues from Incompressible flow, Solver and Boundary value problem, Mathematical analysis.

His research integrates issues of Grid and Computational fluid dynamics in his study of Boundary value problem. His work carried out in the field of Classical mechanics brings together such families of science as Flow separation and Boundary layer. His study in Thrust is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Fish fin, Flapping and Fin.

His most cited work include:

  • IMMERSED BOUNDARY METHODS (2299 citations)
  • A versatile sharp interface immersed boundary method for incompressible flows with complex boundaries (718 citations)
  • Regular Article: An Accurate Cartesian Grid Method for Viscous Incompressible Flows with Complex Immersed Boundaries (636 citations)

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

Mechanics, Flow, Immersed boundary method, Reynolds number and Vortex are his primary areas of study. Mechanics is closely attributed to Classical mechanics in his study. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Classical mechanics, Flapping is strongly linked to Wake.
