Abstract: The paper briefly refers to the present treatments of micro-channel flows that are based on the existing Navier-Stokes-Equations and the employment of wall-slip boundary conditions. The Maxwell slip velocity is employed for this purpose. This theoretical treatment is questioned. It is shown by the authors that the existing Navier-Stokes-Equations are incomplete. They do not contain terms for the self diffusion of mass. Introducing these terms yields the extended Navier-Stokes-Equations that allow micro-channel flows to be treated without the assumption of Maxwellian slip velocities at the wall. A pressure driven slip velocity occurs at the wall and it results as part of the solution for flows in micro-channels by the “Extended Navier-Stokes Equations”. Using these equations, analytical treatments of micro-channel flows are presented. Good agreement with existing experimental results is obtained.
Description: This paper was presented at the 3rd Micro and Nano Flows Conference (MNF2011), which was held at the Makedonia Palace Hotel, Thessaloniki in Greece. The conference was organised by Brunel University and supported by the Italian Union of Thermofluiddynamics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, University of Thessaly, IPEM, the Process Intensification Network, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the Heat Transfer Society, HEXAG - the Heat Exchange Action Group, and the Energy Institute.
