Title: Pressure-driven electrokinetic slip flows of viscoelastic fluids in hydrophobic microchannels
Issue Date: 2014
Abstract: This work investigates the steady-state slip flow of viscoelastic fluids in hydrophobic two-dimensional microchannels under the combined influence of electroosmotic and pressure gradient forcings with symmetric or asymmetric zeta potentials at the walls. The Debye-Huckel approximation for weak potential is assumed, and the simplified Phan-Thien-Tanner model was used for the constitutive equation. Due to the different hydrophobic characteristics of the microchannel walls, we study the influence of the Navier slip boundary condition on the fluid flow, by considering different slip coefficients at both walls and varying the electrical double-layer thickness, the ratio between the applied streamwise gradients of electric potential and pressure, and the ratio of the zeta potentials. For the symmetric case, the effect of the nonlinear Navier slip model on the fluid flow is also investigated.
