This research was always characterized by a deep physical understanding, engineering intuition, and the application of systematic mathematics-based analysis; his theoretical work was based on first principles and was always intended to result in practical models for simulation and analysis of real-world technical combustion systems. For example, he regularly attended meetings of the Society of Automotive Engineers and contributed discussions of technological advances. He began his scientific career working on inert and reacting laminar and turbulent boundary layers during his PhD and habilitation.
