Transient Flows of Newtonian Fluid through a Rectangular Microchannel with Slip Boundary
MetadataShow full item record
We study the transient flow of a Newtonian fluid in rectangular microchannels taking into account boundary slip. An exact solution is derived by using the separation of variables in space and Fourier series expansion in time. It is found that, for different forms of driving pressure field, the effect of boundary slip on the flow behavior is qualitatively different. If the pressure gradient is constant, the flow rate is almost linearly proportional to the slip parameter ℓ when ℓ is large; if the pressure gradient is in a waveform, as the slip parameter ℓ increases, the amplitude of the flow rate increases until approaching a constant value when ℓ becomes sufficiently large.

The effect of interfacial slip on the dynamics of a drop in flow: Part I. Stretching, relaxation, and breakupRamachandran, A.; Tsigklifis, Konstantinos; Roy, A.; Leal, G. (2012)Using a numerical method based on the boundary-integral technique, we assess the impact of interfacial slip on the dynamics of deformation and breakup of a single drop subjected to a uniaxial extensional flow under ...
Wu, Yong-Hong; Wiwatanapataphee, B.; Hu, Mao-Bin (2008)Recent advances in microscale experiments and molecular simulations confirm that slip of fluid on solid surface occurs at small scale, and thus the traditional no-slip boundary condition in fluid mechanics cannot be applied ...
