Primary tabs

The scholarship of two GT-AE faculty has been recognized by Elsevier Publishing, one of the most respected producers of academic journals.

An article co-authored by  W. R. T. Oakes Professor Dr. Vigor Yang was identified as one of the most popular downloads of the last decade, the publisher announced this week.

The 2009 paper, "Dynamics and Stability of Lean-premixed Swirl-stabilized Combustion" has been downloaded a total of 13,955 times, putting it at 19 in the list of top 50 downloads in the area of earth and energy. Co-authored by Yang's former Penn State colleague Ying Huang, it first appeared in the August 2009 edition of the journal Progress in Energy and Combustion Science.

"We do this research to advance the field, and I am very honored that my work has played a role in the explorations of so many other engineers," he said. "I am humbled."

Yang's Georgia Tech colleague Dr. Wenting Sun was also recognized by Elsevier for producing two articles that are among the most cited in their respective journals over the last five years.

Publication: Journal of Combustion and Flame
Faculty: Assistant Professor Dr.  Wenting Sun

Article:  A Path Flux Analysis Method for the Reduction of Detailed Chemical Kinetic Mechanisms

PublicationProceedings of Combustion Institute 
AE Faculty: Assistant Professor Dr. Wenting Sun

"All journals are not the same," said Sun. "These are the most respected in our field, the ones that define the discipline, so it is very rewarding to be recognized by their readers."
