Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Composite material
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Polymer

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Composite material, Nanocomposite, Fracture toughness, Fracture mechanics and Toughness. His Epoxy, Composite number, Ultimate tensile strength, Polymer and Carbon nanotube investigations are all subjects of Composite material research. His research investigates the connection between Nanocomposite and topics such as Electrospinning that intersect with issues in Nanofiber and Nanomaterials.

His Fracture toughness research focuses on subjects like Micromechanics, which are linked to Image stitching. The Fracture mechanics study which covers Fracture that intersects with Tension, Work, Structural engineering and Mechanics. His Toughness study also includes fields such as

  • Delamination together with Deformation,
  • Polymer blend, which have a strong connection to Elastomer, Glass fiber, Izod impact strength test and Microstructure.

His most cited work include:

  • Effects of particle size, particle/matrix interface adhesion and particle loading on mechanical properties of particulate–polymer composites (2034 citations)
  • Dispersion and alignment of carbon nanotubes in polymer matrix: A review (1501 citations)
  • Sisal fibre and its composites: a review of recent developments (830 citations)

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

His main research concerns Composite material, Fracture mechanics, Fracture toughness, Fracture and Epoxy. His study in Composite number, Ultimate tensile strength, Toughness, Polymer and Nanocomposite falls within the category of Composite material. His work on Polypropylene expands to the thematically related Ultimate tensile strength.

His study with Fracture mechanics involves better knowledge in Structural engineering. Yiu-Wing Mai focuses mostly in the field of Fracture toughness, narrowing it down to topics relating to Delamination and, in certain cases, Composite laminates. His Fracture research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Stress, Metallurgy and Tension.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Composite material (81.01%)
  • Fracture mechanics (21.21%)
  • Fracture toughness (19.93%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2010-2021)?

  • Composite material (81.01%)
  • Epoxy (14.20%)
  • Nanotechnology (7.96%)

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

Yiu-Wing Mai mainly investigates Composite material, Epoxy, Nanotechnology, Graphene and Carbon nanotube. His work in Polymer, Composite number, Ultimate tensile strength, Nanocomposite and Fracture toughness is related to Composite material. His Epoxy research integrates issues from Thermal conductivity, Natural rubber, Fracture mechanics, Composite laminates and Toughness.

His work carried out in the field of Nanotechnology brings together such families of science as Anode, Chemical engineering and Electrospinning. His Graphene research focuses on Fire retardant and how it relates to Charring. His research integrates issues of Surface modification and Electrical resistivity and conductivity in his study of Carbon nanotube.

Between 2010 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Recent developments in the fire retardancy of polymeric materials (323 citations)
  • Hollow carbon-nanotube/carbon-nanofiber hybrid anodes for Li-ion batteries. (316 citations)
  • Hollow carbon-nanotube/carbon-nanofiber hybrid anodes for Li-ion batteries. (316 citations)

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

  • Composite material
  • Quantum mechanics
  • Polymer

Yiu-Wing Mai mostly deals with Composite material, Epoxy, Graphene, Nanotechnology and Carbon nanotube. Thermal conductivity, Composite number, Polymer, Modulus and Dynamic mechanical analysis are the primary areas of interest in his Composite material study. His Epoxy study combines topics in areas such as Natural rubber, Fracture mechanics, Composite laminates, Toughness and Fracture toughness.

His Graphene research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Fire retardant, Oxide, Charring and Thermal stability. His Nanotechnology research includes themes of Carbon, Chemical engineering and Electrospinning. In his research, Electrical conductor is intimately related to Electrical resistivity and conductivity, which falls under the overarching field of Carbon nanotube.
