Robert W. Bilger mostly deals with Turbulence, Thermodynamics, Diffusion flame, Mechanics and Jet. Robert W. Bilger studies Turbulent diffusion, a branch of Turbulence. His Thermodynamics research focuses on subjects like Mathematical model, which are linked to Dilution and Mole fraction.

His Mechanics and Turbulence kinetic energy and Direct numerical simulation investigations all form part of his Mechanics research activities. His Jet study frequently draws connections between related disciplines such as Combustion. His study on Raman spectroscopy is often connected to Scalar as part of broader study in Analytical chemistry.

His most cited work include:

  • Conditional moment closure for turbulent combustion (714 citations)
  • Turbulent jet diffusion flames (383 citations)
  • The structure of turbulent nonpremixed flames (281 citations)

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

His primary areas of study are Turbulence, Mechanics, Jet, Thermodynamics and Combustion. His Turbulence research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Premixed flame, Diffusion flame and Analytical chemistry. The study incorporates disciplines such as Laminar flow and Flame structure in addition to Premixed flame.

His study in the fields of Flow under the domain of Mechanics overlaps with other disciplines such as Reaction rate. His work deals with themes such as Soot, Dilution, Rotational symmetry and Nozzle, which intersect with Jet. His Thermodynamics research integrates issues from Mathematical model and Length scale.

  • Jet (24.38%)

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

Robert W. Bilger mainly investigates Turbulence, Mechanics, Jet, Thermodynamics and Moment closure. His research in Turbulence intersects with topics in Combustion, Diffusion flame, Flame structure, Mechanical engineering and Premixed flame. Robert W. Bilger combines subjects such as Molecular physics and Mole fraction with his study of Diffusion flame.

His Mechanics research incorporates elements of Combustor and Methane. Robert W. Bilger has included themes like Turbulence kinetic energy and Analytical chemistry in his Jet study. Robert W. Bilger interconnects Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations and Simulation in the investigation of issues within Moment closure.

Between 2005 and 2014, his most popular works were:

  • A new piloted premixed jet burner to study strong finite-rate chemistry effects (127 citations)
  • The compositional structure of highly turbulent piloted premixed flames issuing into a hot coflow (77 citations)
  • Modeling evaporation effects in conditional moment closure for spray autoignition (70 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Combustion

His primary scientific interests are in Turbulence, Thermodynamics, Moment closure, Combustion and Combustor. His Turbulence study deals with the bigger picture of Mechanics. His work on Mixture fraction as part of general Thermodynamics study is frequently linked to Limiting oxygen concentration, bridging the gap between disciplines.

His research integrates issues of Saturation, Diesel engine, Spatial diffusion and Autoignition temperature in his study of Moment closure. His research in Combustion is mostly focused on Premixed flame. In Jet, Robert W. Bilger works on issues like Analytical chemistry, which are connected to Turbulence kinetic energy and Nozzle.
