Multiscale Analysis of Stationary and Flowing Media with Particle Inclusion
Abstract:Both continuum and discrete atomic analyses were conducted for stationary media and moving fluids with inclusion of submicron-size or nano-size particles. The finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamics analysis were conducted for continuum models, and the molecular dynamics was used for the discrete atomic models. As far as particles are concerned, submicron-size particles were considered for the continuum models while nano-size particles were included in the atomic models. The study investigated the effects of particles on effective heat transfer, flow profiles, and the resulting pressure on the boundary walls, which would be important for fluid-structure interaction behaviors if the boundary walls were flexible rather than rigid.
