Overview

What is she best known for?

The fields of study she is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mathematical analysis

Her primary areas of investigation include Composite material, Mechanics, Strain rate, Stress and Deformation. Her work in the fields of Composite material, such as Microstructure, intersects with other areas such as Moduli. Her Mechanics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Granular material, Geometry, Deformation, Tension and Brittleness.

Her studies deal with areas such as Deformation mechanism and Strain as well as Strain rate. Sia Nemat-Nasser works mostly in the field of Stress, limiting it down to topics relating to Structural engineering and, in certain cases, Bauschinger effect and Dissipation, as a part of the same area of interest. Sia Nemat-Nasser usually deals with Deformation and limits it to topics linked to Strain hardening exponent and Work hardening.

Her most cited work include:

  • Compression‐induced nonplanar crack extension with application to splitting, exfoliation, and rockburst (690 citations)
  • Compression‐induced microcrack growth in brittle solids: Axial splitting and shear failure (669 citations)
  • Brittle Failure in Compression: Splitting, Faulting and Brittle-Ductile Transition (620 citations)

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

Her primary scientific interests are in Composite material, Mechanics, Stress, Mathematical analysis and Structural engineering. Polyurea, Composite number, Strain rate, Polymer and Deformation are among the areas of Composite material where the researcher is concentrating her efforts. She has researched Strain rate in several fields, including Microstructure and Strain.

Her Mechanics research includes themes of Crack closure, Buckling and Brittleness. In her research on the topic of Stress, Tension is strongly related with Compression. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Isotropy, Nonlinear system and Homogenization.

She most often published in these fields:

  • Composite material (38.78%)
  • Mechanics (18.98%)
  • Stress (12.65%)

What were the highlights of her more recent work (between 2008-2019)?

  • Composite material (38.78%)
  • Polyurea (7.96%)
  • Composite number (10.82%)

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

Her main research concerns Composite material, Polyurea, Composite number, Dynamic mechanical analysis and Polymer. Composite material is closely attributed to Constitutive equation in her research. Her Composite number study also includes

  • Homogenization which is related to area like Mathematical analysis, Wave propagation, Metamaterial, Dispersion relation and Bloch wave,
  • Dissipation that intertwine with fields like Aluminium and Dissipative system.

The concepts of her Polymer study are interwoven with issues in Fracture, Fracture toughness, Thermodynamics, Toughness and Cleavage. Her research in Fracture toughness focuses on subjects like Finite element method, which are connected to Stress. Her Optics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Mechanics and Condensed matter physics.

Between 2008 and 2019, her most popular works were:

  • Homogenization of periodic elastic composites and locally resonant sonic materials (119 citations)
  • Experimental investigation of response of monolithic and bilayer plates to impulsive loads (99 citations)
  • Overall dynamic constitutive relations of layered elastic composites (84 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Thermodynamics
  • Mathematical analysis

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Composite material, Polyurea, Composite number, Dynamic mechanical analysis and Homogenization. Her study in Composite material is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cavitation, Plane and Constitutive equation. Her work deals with themes such as Steel plates, Shear, Deformation, Volume fraction and Ultrasonic sensor, which intersect with Polyurea.

Her Composite number study also includes fields such as

  • Condensed matter physics which intersects with area such as Anisotropy, Isotropy, Plane wave and Wavelength,
  • Glass fiber that intertwine with fields like Composite laminates, Epoxy, Acoustic emission, Ultimate tensile strength and Stress concentration. Her Homogenization study combines topics in areas such as Dispersion relation and Mathematical analysis. Her research in Vibration intersects with topics in Mechanics, Structural engineering and Elastic modulus.
