His main research concerns Composite material, Toughness, Fracture toughness, Metallurgy and Fracture mechanics. In his research, Forensic engineering is intimately related to Cortical bone, which falls under the overarching field of Composite material. The Toughness study which covers Plasticity that intersects with Scanning electron microscope, Crystallography and Deflection.
In his research on the topic of Fracture toughness, Deformation mechanism is strongly related with Ductility. His Fracture mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Hardening, Cracking and Pressure vessel. In Alloy, Robert O. Ritchie works on issues like Strain hardening exponent, which are connected to Solid solution.
His primary scientific interests are in Composite material, Fracture toughness, Toughness, Fracture mechanics and Metallurgy. His study involves Ceramic, Microstructure, Fracture, Ultimate tensile strength and Crack closure, a branch of Composite material. His studies examine the connections between Fracture toughness and genetics, as well as such issues in Grain boundary, with regards to Intergranular corrosion.
His study in Toughness is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Plasticity, Cortical bone, Structural material and Damage tolerance, Composite number. His Cortical bone research includes themes of Internal medicine, Osteoporosis and Endocrinology. His work carried out in the field of Fracture mechanics brings together such families of science as Cyclic stress and Forensic engineering.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Composite material, Toughness, Deformation, Ultimate tensile strength and Alloy. His study in Fracture toughness, Fracture, Ductility, Damage tolerance and Microstructure is carried out as part of his Composite material studies. Fracture toughness is closely attributed to Fracture mechanics in his work.
His work deals with themes such as Ceramic and Nickel, which intersect with Damage tolerance. His research investigates the connection between Toughness and topics such as Plasticity that intersect with issues in Shear matrix and Chemical physics. His Alloy study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Crack closure, Nanometre and Strain hardening exponent, Thermodynamics.
Robert O. Ritchie mainly focuses on Composite material, Toughness, Alloy, Plasticity and Dislocation. His research in Ductility, Ultimate tensile strength, Martensite, Fracture toughness and Catastrophic failure are components of Composite material. His Ultimate tensile strength study incorporates themes from Brittleness and Deformation.
His Fracture toughness research incorporates themes from Crack closure, Stress, Microstructure and Twip. Robert O. Ritchie interconnects Damage tolerance and Metallic materials in the investigation of issues within Toughness. His study in the field of High entropy alloys also crosses realms of Solubility.
