Abstract: A detailed study of pressure and temperature driven flows through long channels of triangular and trapezoidal cross sections is carried out. The solution is based on the linearized Shakhov model subject to Maxwell boundary conditions and it is valid in the whole range of the Knudsen number. In addition to the dimensionless flow rates, a methodology is presented to estimate the pressure distribution along the channel, as well as the coefficient of the thermomolecular pressure difference.
Description: This paper was presented at the 2nd Micro and Nano Flows Conference (MNF2009), which was held at Brunel University, West London, UK. The conference was organised by Brunel University and supported by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, IPEM, the Italian Union of Thermofluid dynamics, the Process Intensification Network, HEXAG - the Heat Exchange Action Group and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
