Microfluidics and Nanofluidics Handbook, 2 Volume Set by Sushanta K. Mitra, Suman Chakraborty

By Sushanta K. Mitra, Suman Chakraborty

The Microfluidics and Nanofluidics guide: Two-Volume Set comprehensively captures the cross-disciplinary breadth of micro- and nanofluidics, which surround the organic sciences, chemistry, physics and engineering purposes. To fill the data hole among engineering and the fundamental sciences, the editors pulled jointly key participants, popular of their respective parts, to writer chapters that aid graduate scholars, scientists, and training engineers comprehend the general zone of microfluidics and nanofluidics.


  • Discusses simple microbiology and chemistry regarding microfluidics
  • Explains fabrication techniques
  • Emphasizes functions of microfluidics within the power sector
  • Describes micro-fuel cells and lab-on-a-chip
  • Presents instance tables, graphs, and equations

Covering physics and shipping phenomena in addition to existence sciences and similar purposes, Volume One: Chemistry, Physics, and existence technological know-how Principles presents readers with the elemental technology heritage which are required for the learn of microfluidics and nanofluidics. Volume : Fabrication, Implementation, and Applications makes a speciality of subject matters concerning experimental and numerical tools, through chapters on fabrications and different functions, starting from aerospace to organic platforms. either volumes comprise as a lot interdisciplinary wisdom as attainable to mirror the inherent nature of this quarter, making them worthwhile to scholars and practitioners.

ICREGA’14 - Renewable Energy: Generation and Applications (Springer Proceedings in Energy)

This ebook collects the edited and reviewed contributions provided within the third foreign convention on Renewable power: new release and functions” ICREGA’14, prepared by means of the UAE college in Al-Ain. This convention goals to disseminate wisdom on equipment, regulations and applied sciences relating to renewable strength and it recognizes the management of the UAE which dedicated to a 7% renewable strength goal by means of 2020.

Principles of Heat Transfer, 7th Edition

Rules of warmth move used to be first released in 1959, and because then it has grown to be thought of a vintage in the box, atmosphere the criteria for insurance and association inside all different warmth move texts. The e-book is designed for a one-semester path in warmth move on the junior or senior point, even though, flexibility in pedagogy has been supplied.

12]. 5 times the standard state density. 1. The results show that larger molecular diameter leads to a smaller critical density with SO2 having a critical density less than three times the standard state density, whereas the value for He is larger than 13 times the standard state density. 1 Direct Simulation Monte Carlo (DSMC) for Perfect Gas The DSMC method is a molecular-based statistical simulation method for rarefied gas flows introduced by Bird [13]. The method numerically solves the dynamic equations for the gas flow using thousands of simulated molecules.

The surface integrals over the cylindrical surface are proportional to l, and hence they also turn out to be zero. If the mediums 1 and 2 are immiscible, no mass flows across the boundary. In case the interface is stationary, the mass conservation equation yields ρ1u1 . n = ρ2 u 2 . n. At each point on the interface in the limiting case, the face area of the cylinder tends to zero. In a special case, when medium 2 represents stationary solid, u1 . n = 0 , which is also known as no penetration boundary condition.

For an ideal gas, (with Prandtl and Schmidt numbers of unity), this becomes (1/3) lum where l is the microscopic , mixing length (analogous to the mean free path of an ideal gas), um is the mean thermal speed predicted from molecular-level considerations, and ρ is the fluid density. Further simplifications may be obtained by considering the equation of state for ideal gases (P = ρRT) under local equilibrium conditions to obtain ui = C1 ∂(ln ρ) . 67) Fundamentally, the shear stress (or, equivalently, momentum flux), τij has contribution form three separate contributions, namely, τ ijI , τ ijII , and τ ijIII .
