Mathematical analysis of microflows under electroosmotic forces
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis is concerned with the transient flows of Newtonian fluids in micro-channels. Different flow-driving mechanisms and micro-slip on boundary are taken into account. By using the complex variable method combined with the Fourier series expansion in time and Bessel functions in space, the underlying boundary value problems are solved and a subsequent investigation is carried out to study the flow dynamics and the control of flow pattern and behaviour.

Secondary Flow Vortex Structures and Forced Convection Heat Transfer in Fluid Flow through Curved Elliptical DuctsChandratilleke, Tilak; Nadim, Nima (2014)Fluid flow through curved ducts is essentially characterised by the secondary flow effects due to duct curvature and cross-sectional flow geometry. Such flows produce vortex structures making the fluid behaviour vastly ...
Nadim, Nima (2012)Fluid flow through curved ducts is influenced by the centrifugal action arising from duct curvature and has behaviour uniquely different to fluid flow through straight ducts. In such flows, centrifugal forces induce ...
