Computational Analysis of Wall Roughness Effects for Liquid Flow in Micro-Conduits

Abstract

Fluid flow in microchannels or microtubes may differ in terms of wall frictional effects, and hence flow rates, when compared to macrochannels. Focusing on steady laminar fully developed flow of a liquid in different micro-conduits, relative surface roughness is captured in terms of a porous medium layer (PML) model. The new approach allows the evaluation… (More)
