Wetting of single crystalline and amorphous silicon surfaces: effective range of intermolecular forces for wetting
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2020)
Wetting at nanoscale is a property of a three-dimensional region with a finite length into the solid domain from the surface. Understanding the extent of the solid region effective on wetting is important for recent coating ...
An extended Kozeny-Carman-Klinkenberg model for gas permeability in micro/nano-porous media
(Amer Inst Physics, 2019)
Gas transport in micropores/nanopores deviates from classical continuum calculations due to nonequilibrium in gas dynamics. In such a case, transport can be classified by the Knudsen number (Kn) as the ratio of gas mean ...
Parametrizing nonbonded interactions between silica and water from first principles
Silica has been used in a vast number of micro/nano-fluidic technologies where interactions of water with silica at the molecular level play a key role. In such small systems, an understanding of mass and heat transport ...
Roughness Effects on the Surface Charge Properties of Silica Nanoparticles
(Amer Chemical Soc, 2020)
The surface charge property of silica nanoparticles plays a key role in their function. Previous studies assumed surface charge as a homogeneously distributed constant material property, independent of the nanoparticle ...
Numerical determination of interfacial heat transfer coefficient for an aligned dual scale porous medium
(Emerald Group Publishing Ltd, 2018)
Purpose Fluid flow and heat transfer in a dual scale porous media is investigated to determine the interfacial convective heat transfer coefficient, numerically. The studied porous media is a periodic dual scale porous ...
