Abstract: Over the past decade micro and nanofluidics emerged as vital tools in the ongoing drive towards the development of nano-scale analysis and manufacturing systems. Accurate numerical modelling of the phenomena involved at these scales is ssential in order to speed up the industrial design process for nanotechnology. However a parameter often ignored in hybrid simulations is the uncertainty level introduced in the numerical modelling of phenomena taking place at micro and nanoscales. The main interest of the present study is the propagation of the inherent atomistic fluctuations to the continuum solver in the case of multiscale modelling and hybrid solvers.
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.
