Polymer solutions subject to pressure driven flow and in nanoscale slit pores are systematically investigated using the dissipative particle dynamics approach. The authors investigated the effect of molecular weight, polymer concentration, and flow rate on the profiles across the channel of the fluid and polymer velocities, polymer density, and the three components of the polymers radius of gyration. They found that the mean streaming fluid velocity decreases as the polymer molecular weight and… CONTINUE READING
