Abstract

The liquid flow in sub-micron channels is simulated using multi-body dissipative particle dynamics (MDPD) to study the effect of the surface tension between liquid and wall surface on the flow in sub-micon scale. The solution domain is considered to be two-dimensional, where DPD particles are randomly distributed. Periodic boundary condition is employed in the flow direction and the solid walls are created by distributing DPD particles in the additional layers on the top and bottom of the domain. The different surface tensions between liquid and wall surface are obtained by changing the interaction parameters between the liquid and wall DPD particles. The ratio of Capillary number (Ca) to Reynolds number (Re) is used to relate the DPD units to the physical units. The results are shown in the form of slip length and the effect of the surface tension on the liquid flow in sub-micron channels is discussed. Copyright © 2013 by ASME.
