Exploring new directions in modeling various engineering flow systems: flows involved include micro- and nano-scale flows, quantum fluid flows such as electron transport in materials, rarefied gas flows, turbulent flows, and multiphase flows. The primary purposes of these investigations are development in micro and nanotechnology, energy technology, high-speed travel, decision making, and environmental issues.

Adopting the definition and existence of various type of flow velocities beyond that of the standard mass velocity, we suggest derivation of model boundary conditions that may systematically justify various diffusion process occurring in micro- and nano-flows....

Physical Review E

We present a full investigation into shock-wave profile description using hydrodynamics models. We identified constitutive equations that provide better agreement for all parameters involved in testing hydrodynamic equations for the prediction of shock structure in a monatomic gas in the Mach number range 1 - 11 ....

Understanding high liquid flow rates in CNTs

Over the past two decades, several researchers have presented experimental data from pressure-driven liquid flows through nanotubes. They quote flow velocities which are four to five orders of magnitude higher than those predicted by the classical theory. ...

Recasting Navier-Stokes Equations

Here in Journal of Physics Communications we propose a technique that transforms classical Navier-Stokes equations into mathematically and physically different structures.
