Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanics
  • Mechanical engineering

Vijay K. Dhir spends much of his time researching Thermodynamics, Heat transfer, Nucleate boiling, Boiling and Heat flux. His Thermodynamics study incorporates themes from Mechanics and Two-phase flow. His Heat transfer research is mostly focused on the topic Heat transfer coefficient.

His Nucleate boiling study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Conservation of mass, Critical heat flux, Nucleation, Superheating and Subcooling. He combines subjects such as Thermal conduction, Thermal and Vaporization with his study of Boiling. His research integrates issues of Boiling heat transfer and External flow in his study of Leidenfrost effect.

His most cited work include:

  • BOILING HEAT TRANSFER (448 citations)
  • Effect of Surface Wettability on Active Nucleation Site Density During Pool Boiling of Water on a Vertical Surface (398 citations)
  • Dynamics and Heat Transfer Associated With a Single Bubble During Nucleate Boiling on a Horizontal Surface (316 citations)

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

Vijay K. Dhir mainly focuses on Mechanics, Thermodynamics, Heat transfer, Boiling and Nucleate boiling. His Mechanics study frequently links to related topics such as Work. His study in Subcooling, Heat flux, Heat transfer coefficient, Leidenfrost effect and Superheating is done as part of Thermodynamics.

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

His primary areas of study are Heat transfer, Mechanics, Boiling, Thermodynamics and Nucleate boiling. His Heat transfer research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Heat exchanger and Composite material, Fin. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Metallurgy and Boiling heat transfer, Critical heat flux, Heat flux.

His Nucleate boiling research integrates issues from Work, Superheating, Gravity force, Computer simulation and Bubble. His research in Superheating intersects with topics in Number density and Gravity of Earth, Gravity. His work in Subcooling tackles topics such as Bubble point which are related to areas like Capillary action and Nusselt number.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Handbook of phase change : boiling and condensation (188 citations)
  • Single bubble dynamics on a superhydrophilic surface with artificial nucleation sites (72 citations)
  • Numerical Simulation of Pool Boiling: A Review (62 citations)

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

  • Thermodynamics
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Mechanics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Nucleate boiling, Heat transfer, Thermodynamics, Boiling and Bubble. While the research belongs to areas of Nucleate boiling, Vijay K. Dhir spends his time largely on the problem of Computer simulation, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Thermal. Heat transfer is a subfield of Mechanics that Vijay K. Dhir explores.

The concepts of his Mechanics study are interwoven with issues in Wafer and Optics. His Boiling study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Critical heat flux and Leidenfrost effect. His Bubble research includes elements of Buoyancy, Nucleation, Subcooling, Substrate and Superhydrophilicity.
