What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Combustion

Combustor, Combustion, Mechanics, Laminar flame speed and Thermodynamics are his primary areas of study. His Combustor research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Automotive engineering, NOx, Flow and Nonlinear system. Tim Lieuwen has included themes like Waste management, Natural gas, Aerospace engineering and Gas turbines in his Combustion study.

His research on Mechanics frequently connects to adjacent areas such as Amplitude. His studies deal with areas such as Flow velocity, Superposition principle and Laminar flow as well as Laminar flame speed. His Thermodynamics study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Flame speed and Hydrogen, Syngas.

His most cited work include:

  • Combustion Instabilities In Gas Turbine Engines: Operational Experience, Fundamental Mechanisms, and Modeling (502 citations)
  • Lean blowoff of bluff body stabilized flames: Scaling and dynamics (359 citations)
  • Modeling Premixed Combustion-Acoustic Wave Interactions: A Review (345 citations)

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

His main research concerns Mechanics, Combustor, Combustion, Turbulence and Premixed flame. His work deals with themes such as Amplitude, Laminar flame speed and Classical mechanics, which intersect with Mechanics. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Flame speed under Laminar flame speed, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Thermodynamics.

His Combustor research also works with subjects such as

  • Nozzle which connect with Transverse plane,
  • Instability, which have a strong connection to Convection. His Combustion research includes themes of Waste management, Work, Mechanical engineering, Gas turbines and Carbon dioxide. His Premixed flame research incorporates elements of Strouhal number, Diffusion flame, Flow velocity and Analytical chemistry.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (55.93%)
  • Combustor (31.96%)
  • Combustion (26.55%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Mechanics (55.93%)
  • Turbulence (18.81%)
  • Combustor (31.96%)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Mechanics, Turbulence, Combustor, Combustion and Combustion chamber. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Premixed flame and Dynamics. Tim Lieuwen has researched Turbulence in several fields, including Flame structure, Intensity and Laminar flow.

His study looks at the intersection of Laminar flow and topics like Particle image velocimetry with Leading edge and Instability. His Combustor study also includes

  • Acoustics most often made with reference to Nozzle,
  • Flow velocity, which have a strong connection to Convection,
  • NOx and related Combined cycle. His research in Combustion intersects with topics in Nitrogen oxides, Waste management, Volume, Methane and Gas turbines.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Effect of turbulence–chemistry interactions on chemical pathways for turbulent hydrogen–air premixed flames (24 citations)
  • Simultaneous imaging of fuel, OH, and three component velocity fields in high pressure, liquid fueled, swirl stabilized flames at 5 kHz (22 citations)
  • Nitrogen oxide emissions from rich premixed reacting jets in a vitiated crossflow (20 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Mechanical engineering

Tim Lieuwen mainly investigates Mechanics, Combustor, Laminar flow, Flow and Turbulence. Mechanics is closely attributed to Amplitude in his study. His Combustor research includes elements of Flow velocity, Flash point, Nuclear engineering, Combustion chamber and NOx.

His Laminar flow study introduces a deeper knowledge of Thermodynamics. His study in the field of Turbulence kinetic energy is also linked to topics like Radical formation. Tim Lieuwen studied Leading edge and Propane that intersect with Combustion.
