Vigor Yang mainly investigates Combustion, Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Propellant and Combustor. The study incorporates disciplines such as Rocket and Aerospace engineering in addition to Combustion. His research integrates issues of Injector and Classical mechanics in his study of Mechanics.

The concepts of his Thermodynamics study are interwoven with issues in Premelting and Surface charge. His Propellant research incorporates themes from Waste management, Ignition system, Phase and Reynolds number. His research in Combustor intersects with topics in Work, Large eddy simulation, Turbine, Pollutant emissions and Flow.

His most cited work include:

  • Dynamics and stability of lean-premixed swirl-stabilized combustion (710 citations)
  • Combustion Instabilities In Gas Turbine Engines: Operational Experience, Fundamental Mechanisms, and Modeling (502 citations)
  • Liquid rocket engine combustion instability (308 citations)

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

Vigor Yang mostly deals with Mechanics, Combustion, Propellant, Turbulence and Supercritical fluid. Vigor Yang has researched Mechanics in several fields, including Injector and Classical mechanics. His Combustion study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Ignition system, Aerospace engineering and Thermodynamics.

His Propellant research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Rocket, Composite material and Nozzle. Vigor Yang combines subjects such as Premixed flame and Laminar flow with his study of Turbulence. His Supercritical fluid research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Hydrogen, Mixing, Liquid oxygen, Methane and Mixing.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (39.88%)
  • Combustion (38.04%)
  • Propellant (15.54%)

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

  • Mechanics (39.88%)
  • Supercritical fluid (13.29%)
  • Injector (12.88%)

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

Mechanics, Supercritical fluid, Injector, Combustion and Turbulence are his primary areas of study. His work carried out in the field of Mechanics brings together such families of science as Coaxial, Mixing and Dynamics. His research investigates the connection with Supercritical fluid and areas like Kerosene which intersect with concerns in Mixing.

The various areas that Vigor Yang examines in his Injector study include Flow, Propellant and Analytical chemistry. He conducts interdisciplinary study in the fields of Combustion and Nanosecond through his research. His Turbulence study incorporates themes from Chemical kinetics, Premixed flame, Vortex and Laminar flow.

Between 2015 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Metal-based nanoenergetic materials: Synthesis, properties, and applications (122 citations)
  • A general theory of ignition and combustion of nano- and micron-sized aluminum particles (97 citations)
  • Multiscale modeling and general theory of non-equilibrium plasma-assisted ignition and combustion (34 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Mechanical engineering

Vigor Yang focuses on Mechanics, Combustion, Supercritical fluid, Ignition system and Turbulence. His work on Large eddy simulation as part of general Mechanics research is often related to CPU time, thus linking different fields of science. Vigor Yang performs integrative study on Combustion and Nanosecond in his works.

His Supercritical fluid research includes elements of Mixing and Equation of state. His study in Ignition system is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Nanotechnology, Energetic material and Thermite. Vigor Yang studied Turbulence and Premixed flame that intersect with Thermodynamics.
