Viscous Flow Over a Chemically Patterned Surface

Abstract:

The classical fluid dynamics boundary condition of no-slip suggests that variation in the wettability of a solid should not affect the flow of an adjacent liquid. However experiments and molecular dynamics simulations indicate that this is not the case. In this paper we show how flow over a solid substrate with variations of wettability can be described in a continuum framework using the interface formation theory developed earlier. Results demonstrate that a shear flow over a perfectly flat ...
