dc.descriptionThis paper was presented at the 2nd Micro and Nano Flows Conference (MNF2009), which was held at Brunel University, West London, UK. The conference was organised by Brunel University and supported by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, IPEM, the Italian Union of Thermofluid dynamics, the Process Intensification Network, HEXAG - the Heat Exchange Action Group and the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.en_US
dc.description.abstractMany flows at microscale and below are characterised by an inherent multiscale nature and accurate numerical modelling of the phenomena involved is the cornerstone for enhancing the applicability of micro and nanofluidics in the industrial environment. This paper presents a hybrid molecular-continuum strategy named as point wise coupling for studying complex micro- and nanoscale flows. In this strategy one performs continuum simulations and uses a molecular solver for computing flow properties. The hybrid methodology utilises a numerical procedure to minimise the cost of the computationally expensive molecular solver. Simulations have been carried out for a slip Poiseuille flow test case. The hybrid results are in good agreement with analytical solutions and pervious molecular simulations.en_US
