- Interfacial slip friction at a fluid-solid cylindrical boundary
- Kannam, Sridhar Kumar; Todd, B. D.; Hansen, J. S.; Daivis, Peter J.
- Recently we proposed a method to calculate the interfacial friction coefficient between fluid and solid at a planar interface. In this work we extend the method to cylindrical systems where the friction coefficient is curvature dependent. We apply the method to methane flow in carbon nanotubes, and find good agreement with non-equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations. The proposed method is robust, general, and can be used to predict the slip for cylindrical nanofluidic systems.
