Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Fluid dynamics

Steven W. Armfield mostly deals with Mechanics, Heat transfer, Boundary layer, Navier–Stokes equations and Finite volume method. His Natural convection, Computer simulation and Flow study, which is part of a larger body of work in Mechanics, is frequently linked to Materials science, bridging the gap between disciplines. His Natural convection research includes elements of Stratification and Scaling.

His study on Heat transfer also encompasses disciplines like

  • Steady state together with Self-similarity and Rotational symmetry,
  • Classical mechanics together with Direct numerical simulation and Streamlines, streaklines, and pathlines. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Boundary layer, Thermal is strongly linked to Rayleigh number. Steven W. Armfield has researched Navier–Stokes equations in several fields, including Computational fluid dynamics, Discretization, Mathematical analysis, Boundary value problem and Geometry.

His most cited work include:

  • Transient features of natural convection in a cavity (151 citations)
  • A representation of curved boundaries for the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations on a staggered three-dimensional Cartesian grid (150 citations)
  • The Fractional-Step Method for the Navier-Stokes Equations on Staggered Grids (109 citations)

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

His main research concerns Mechanics, Natural convection, Prandtl number, Direct numerical simulation and Turbulence. His work on Boundary layer, Reynolds number and Froude number as part of general Mechanics research is often related to Materials science, thus linking different fields of science. His Boundary layer study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Thermal and Steady state.

His work investigates the relationship between Natural convection and topics such as Flow that intersect with problems in Data center. The various areas that Steven W. Armfield examines in his Prandtl number study include Flow, Instability, Turbulent Prandtl number, Rayleigh scattering and Scaling. His Direct numerical simulation research incorporates elements of Stratification, Dimensionless quantity and Isothermal process.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (67.71%)
  • Natural convection (28.25%)
  • Prandtl number (22.87%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2015-2021)?

  • Mechanics (67.71%)
  • Natural convection (28.25%)
  • Turbulence (21.97%)

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

His primary scientific interests are in Mechanics, Natural convection, Turbulence, Materials science and Boundary layer. As a part of the same scientific family, Steven W. Armfield mostly works in the field of Mechanics, focusing on Scaling and, on occasion, Reynolds number. His Natural convection study incorporates themes from Adiabatic process and Computer simulation.

While the research belongs to areas of Turbulence, Steven W. Armfield spends his time largely on the problem of Jet, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Turbulence statistics. His research integrates issues of Meteorology, Flow, Prandtl number and Heat flux in his study of Boundary layer. His Heat transfer research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Geometry, Multigrid method, Convection and Finite volume method.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Conjugate natural convection heat transfer in a partitioned differentially-heated square cavity (26 citations)
  • Scalings for unsteady natural convection boundary layers on a vertical plate at time-dependent temperature (14 citations)
  • Turbulent dense gas flow characteristics in swirling conical diffuser (12 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Mechanical engineering
