1. SELLAMI, NADIA. WALL MODEL EFFECTS ON TWO PHASE FLOWS AND PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION IN NANOCHANNELS.

Degree: PhD, Aerospace Engineering, 2009, Penn State University

URL: https://etda.libraries.psu.edu/catalog/9998

Molecular simulations of single phase bounded
nanoflows, especially at high density, showed discrepancies from
the classical Navier Stokes solutions: the failure of predicting
the slip value at the wall, stratification of the density close to
the wall and excessive heating which affects the natural thermal
fluctuations of the atomistic system (NVE ensemble). These
discrepancies are a direct consequence of the importance of the
surface effects for such scales as the surface to volume ratio
increases dramatically at the nanoscale. To alleviate some of these
observed phenomena, the modeling of the solid boundaries progressed
from implicit mathematical wall models to explicit multi-layered
atomistic structure including temperature/pressure control
mechanisms and heat transfer exchanges. However, the wall models
used in molecular simulations vary greatly in physical
characteristics such as the wetting property (under static
conditions) or momentum and heat exchange (under flow conditions)
and consequently, the equilibrium and steady state conditions
reached depend on the complexity of the model and the application
it is developed for. This work investigates the characteristics of
different wall models found in the literature and compares their
effects for the specific applications of single phase flows and
nanojets (two-phase flows). It is found that the system
thermodynamic pressure varies considerably depending on the
parameters and complexity of the surface models and consequently
alters both the flow and the jet behaviors. Assessments of these
differences in terms of the system pressure, slip value at the
surface and the injection velocity for different wall categories
(atomistic, stochastic/diffuse and functional wall models) and
parameters are provided. Another important consequence is the
dependency of nanojet stability on the dense flow-surface
interactions and liquid-gas-solid surface interactions. A new
integrated and sinusoidal wall model was developed to satisfy the
requirements of our main application: two-phase flow injection. It
provides agreement with thermodynamic data and flow profiles as
well as injection velocity. Other numerical tools were also
introduced to better serve this specific numerical experiment. A
new Lennard-Jones modified potential for long range corrections and
a preliminary pressure driven flow method were developed and
implemented and promising results for pressure, energy and flow
profiles are found.

2. Seric, Ivana. Direct computations of marangoni driven flows using a volume of fluid method.

Degree: PhD, Mathematical Sciences, 2017, New Jersey Institute of Technology

URL: https://digitalcommons.njit.edu/dissertations/40

The volume of fluid (VoF) interface tracking methods have been used for simulating a wide range of interfacial flows. An improved accuracy of the surface tension force computation has enabled the VoF method to become widely used for simulating flows driven by the surface tension force. A general methodology for the inclusion of variable surface tension coefficient into a VoF based Navier-Stokes solver is developed. This new numerical model provides a robust and accurate method for computing the surface gradients directly by finding the tangent directions on the interface using height functions. The implementation applies to both temperature and concentration dependent surface tension coefficient, along with the setups involving a large jump in the temperature between the fluid and its surrounding, as well as the situations where the concentration should be strictly confined to the fluid domain, such as the mixing of fluids with different surface tension coefficients. The accuracy and convergence of the surface gradient computation are presented for various geometries, and for a classical problem of the thermocapillary migration of bubbles. The study of several applications of variable surface tension flows is presented, such as the breakup of liquid metal films and filaments, and the coalescence of drops characterized by different surface tension.
