Title Role of surface shape on boundary slip and velocity defect
Abstract Although many gas-phase microfluidic devices contain curved surfaces, relatively little research has been conducted on the degree of slip over nonplanar surfaces. The present study demonstrates the influence of the surface shape (i.e., convex/concave) on the velocity slip and formation of the Knudsen layer. In addition, the study reveals that there is a simple relationship between the shear stress exerted on the surface and the velocity defect in the Knudsen layer.
