Slip Velocity Distribution in a Parallel Plate Channel on Asymmetric Thermal Boundary Condition
Keywords:Slip, Knudsen number, Compressible, Reynolds number, Incompressible
Steady, laminar and fully developed flows in parallel plate microchannel with asymmetric thermal wall conditions are solved by control volume technique. In order to examine the influence of Reynolds number and Knudsen number on the velocity distributions, a series of simulations are performed for different Reynolds and Knudsen numbers. Nitrogen gas is used as working fluid and we assume the fluid as continuum but employ the slip boundary conditions on the walls. The Navier-Stokes and energy equations are solved simultaneously. The results are found in good agreement with those predicted by analytical solutions in 2D continuous flow model employing first order slip boundary conditions. It is concluded that the rarefaction flattens the velocity distribution. If the product of Reynolds numbers and Knudsen numbers is fixed, the cross sectional average velocity is fixed for incompressible flow.
