Fluid flows through anisotropic media are found in a wide variety of geophysical and biological systems. The macroscale behavior of these systems depends on the microstructure, which in turn may depend on local and global physical processes. Classically, geometric restrictions are needed to model these systems on the largest length scale, and we are interested in developing effective models which relax these restrictions. To explore the development of these multiscale models, we consider an…

Dynamics and rupture of planar electrified liquid sheets

We investigate the stability of a thin two-dimensional liquid film when a uniform electric field is applied in a direction parallel to the initially flat bounding fluid interfaces. We consider the

We examine the stability of a thin two-dimensional incompressible liquid film when an electric field is applied in a direction parallel to the initially flat bounding fluid interfaces, and study the

Electrokinetic instabilities in thin microchannels

An important class of electrokinetic, microfluidic devices aims to pump and control electrolyte working liquids that have spatial gradients in conductivity. These high-gradient flows can become

A Two-Scale Model for Coupled Electro-Chemo-Mechanical Phenomena and Onsager’s Reciprocity Relations in Expansive Clays: II Computational Validation

In Part I Moyne and Murad [Transport in Porous Media62, (2006), 333–380] a two-scale model of coupled electro-chemo-mechanical phenomena in swelling porous media was derived by a formal asymptotic

Colloid Transport by Interfacial Forces

In a historical context the interface between two phases has played only a minor role in the physics of fluid dynamics. It is of course true that boundary conditions at interfaces, usually imposed as

Nonlinear electrokinetics at large voltages

The classical theory of electrokinetic phenomena assumes a dilute solution of point-like ions in chemical equilibrium with a surface whose double-layer voltage is of order the thermal voltage,

The macroscopic model governing coupled electro-chemo-mechanical phenomena in expansive clays is revisited within a rigorous homogenization procedure applied to the microscopic governing equations

Three-dimensional flows in slowly varying planar geometries

We consider laminar flow in channels constrained geometrically to remain between two parallel planes; this geometry is typical of microchannels obtained with a single step by current microfabrication

The use of microwaves to heat laminate panels occurs in a variety of industrial processes, from chemical vapor infiltration (CVI) systems to the curing of adhesives in laminate panels. The electrical
