Flow and slip transition in nanochannels.

Abstract

We experimentally investigate the Poiseuille flows in nanochannels. It is found that the flow rate undergoes a transition between two linear regimes as the shear rate is varied. The transition indicates that the nonslip boundary condition is valid at low shear rate. When the shear rate is larger than a critical value, slip takes place and the slip length… (More)
