Micropolar fluids are a subclass of simple microfluids presented by Eringen [1, 2], that have gained attention from researchers because they are expected to succesfully model the behavior of non-Newtonian fluids like ferro liquids, liquid polymers, and any fluid with suspended particles in it. One of many applications is to model nanofluids, where inserting(More)
Micropolar fluids are a generalization of the Navier-Stokes equations of classical hydrody-namics [1, 2]. Taking into account effects of microstructures at the continuum scale, we discretize the system of equations coming from the conservation laws. We use divergence-conforming B-spline spaces for the discrete velocity-pressure fields pair, guaranteeing the(More)
