Abstract: Extensive work in the field of micro-channel and micro-capillary flows using the extended Navier-Stokes equations are carried out in this paper by taking the diffusive mass transport into account and provided the basis for analytical treatments of these flows. The results are compared with experimental results for micro-channels and showed good agreement. It is found that a characteristic pressure is useful to explain the comparisons. In addition, the work on micro-channel flows is extended to micro-capillary flows, to provide analytical treatments of this class of flows. The analytical results show similar behavior to that of micro-channel flows. Comparisons between the analytical results and experimental findings are also presented and discussed by introducing the characteristic pressure.
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.
