Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Mechanics
  • Turbulence
  • Fluid dynamics

His main research concerns Turbulence, Mechanics, Open-channel flow, Turbulence modeling and K-epsilon turbulence model. His Turbulence research incorporates themes from Flow and Classical mechanics. His research integrates issues of Froude number, Reynolds equation, Heat transfer and Flow velocity in his study of Open-channel flow.

While the research belongs to areas of Turbulence modeling, Wolfgang Rodi spends his time largely on the problem of Pipe flow, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Inviscid flow. His work on K-omega turbulence model and Reynolds stress equation model as part of general K-epsilon turbulence model research is frequently linked to Mathematical model, thereby connecting diverse disciplines of science. The study incorporates disciplines such as Wake and Mathematical analysis in addition to Reynolds number.

His most cited work include:

  • Progress in the development of a Reynolds-stress turbulence closure (3116 citations)
  • Turbulence Models and Their Application in Hydraulics (1558 citations)
  • Turbulence models for near-wall and low Reynolds number flows - A review (962 citations)

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

His primary areas of investigation include Mechanics, Turbulence, Reynolds number, Flow and Large eddy simulation. Mechanics is closely attributed to Thermodynamics in his work. His work carried out in the field of Turbulence brings together such families of science as Flow and Classical mechanics.

The Reynolds number study combines topics in areas such as Cylinder, Wake, Optics and Vorticity. His Turbulence modeling study which covers Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations that intersects with Mean flow. His work on K-omega turbulence model and Reynolds stress equation model as part of general K-epsilon turbulence model research is often related to Mathematical model, thus linking different fields of science.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Mechanics (80.19%)
  • Turbulence (74.88%)
  • Reynolds number (22.71%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2004-2020)?

  • Mechanics (80.19%)
  • Turbulence (74.88%)
  • Large eddy simulation (19.32%)

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

Wolfgang Rodi focuses on Mechanics, Turbulence, Large eddy simulation, Reynolds number and Flow. Wolfgang Rodi combines topics linked to Thermodynamics with his work on Mechanics. His Turbulence research includes elements of Laminar flow and Classical mechanics.

Wolfgang Rodi interconnects Optics, Vortex, Vorticity, Jet and Open-channel flow in the investigation of issues within Large eddy simulation. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Structural engineering, Flow visualization and Detached eddy simulation. His study in Direct numerical simulation is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Cylinder and K-omega turbulence model, K-epsilon turbulence model.

Between 2004 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Highly resolved large-eddy simulation of separated flow in a channel with streamwise periodic constrictions (290 citations)
  • Turbulence Structures in Flow over Two-Dimensional Dunes (99 citations)
  • Numerical study of the near wake of a circular cylinder (90 citations)

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

  • Mechanics
  • Fluid dynamics
  • Thermodynamics

Turbulence, Mechanics, Reynolds number, Large eddy simulation and Classical mechanics are his primary areas of study. Turbulence is frequently linked to Boundary value problem in his study. His work is dedicated to discovering how Mechanics, Optics are connected with Dispersion and other disciplines.

His Reynolds number research incorporates elements of Cylinder, Structural engineering and Wake. His Large eddy simulation research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Unstructured grid, Mean flow, Simulation and Vorticity. His Classical mechanics research includes themes of Jet, Instability and Nozzle.
