Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Electrical engineering

S.M. Spearing focuses on Composite material, Microelectromechanical systems, Epoxy, Delamination and Mechanical engineering. Composite material connects with themes related to Synchrotron radiation in his study. S.M. Spearing interconnects Electronic engineering, Design tool and Microscale chemistry in the investigation of issues within Microelectromechanical systems.

The concepts of his Electronic engineering study are interwoven with issues in Tensile testing and Actuator. S.M. Spearing has researched Epoxy in several fields, including Composite number and Fracture mechanics. When carried out as part of a general Delamination research project, his work on Fiber pull-out is frequently linked to work in Bridging, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study.

His most cited work include:

  • Materials issues in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) (523 citations)
  • MEMS actuators and sensors: observations on their performance and selection for purpose (301 citations)
  • MEMS actuators and sensors: observations on their performance and selection for purpose (301 citations)

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

S.M. Spearing mostly deals with Composite material, Microelectromechanical systems, Composite number, Silicon and Nanotechnology. His Composite material research includes elements of Finite element method and Synchrotron radiation. His studies deal with areas such as Residual stress, Electronic engineering, Mechanical engineering and Annealing as well as Microelectromechanical systems.

His Silicon research includes themes of Etching, Reactive-ion etching and Wafer. S.M. Spearing has included themes like Electrical contacts and Cantilever in his Nanotechnology study. As a part of the same scientific family, S.M. Spearing mostly works in the field of Epoxy, focusing on Ultimate tensile strength and, on occasion, Stress concentration.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Composite material (65.57%)
  • Microelectromechanical systems (24.04%)
  • Composite number (15.30%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2014-2021)?

  • Composite material (65.57%)
  • Composite number (15.30%)
  • Ultimate tensile strength (7.65%)

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

His main research concerns Composite material, Composite number, Ultimate tensile strength, Polymer and Finite element method. His Composite material study incorporates themes from Synchrotron and Synchrotron radiation. While the research belongs to areas of Composite number, he spends his time largely on the problem of Indentation, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Focus, Autoclave, Material failure theory, Tension and Void.

His research investigates the link between Ultimate tensile strength and topics such as Stress concentration that cross with problems in Tension. His work focuses on many connections between Finite element method and other disciplines, such as Crack closure, that overlap with his field of interest in Crack initiation and Stress redistribution. In Delamination, he works on issues like Fracture, which are connected to Structural engineering.

Between 2014 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Synchrotron radiation computed tomography for experimental validation of a tensile strength model for unidirectional fibre-reinforced composites (61 citations)
  • Investigation of the response to low velocity impact and quasi-static indentation loading of particle-toughened carbon-fibre composite materials (43 citations)
  • Mapping fibre failure in situ in carbon fibre reinforced polymers by fast synchrotron X-ray computed tomography (41 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Electrical engineering

Composite material, Synchrotron radiation, Polymer, Ultimate tensile strength and Stress concentration are his primary areas of study. His study brings together the fields of Tomography and Composite material. His research integrates issues of Volume fraction, Tomographic reconstruction and Fibre content in his study of Synchrotron radiation.

His studies in Fracture integrate themes in fields like Micro mechanism and Toughness. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Synchrotron and Fracture mechanics. His study on Delamination is often connected to Quasistatic process as part of broader study in Composite number.
