Bivelocity Hydrodynamics of Micro-Channel Couette Flow.

Walls, Peter.

Abstract: A nonkinetic approach is adopted in this thesis to numerically predict the profiles of a Maxwellian ideal gas in a micro-channel geometry. Our analysis utilizes a full set of mechanically and thermodynamically consistent volume-diffusion hydrodynamic equations. Bivelocity theory predicts, contrary to current investigations, a no-slip velocity at the wall in planar Couette flow for rarefi... read more
