Coarse-grained Description of Thermo-capillary Ow Typeset Using Revt E X 1


A mesoscopic or coarse-grained approach is presented to study thermo-capillary induced ows. An order parameter representation of a two-phase binary uid is used in which the interfacial region separating the phases naturally occupies a transition zone of small width. The order parameter satisses the Cahn-Hilliard equation with advective transport. A modiied… (More)
