Fluid Dynamics

  • Rainer Kimmich


Treatments of molecular dynamics in general and especially if they are based on Langevin equations of motions are hardly possible without referring to hydrodynamics. Basic hydrodynamic concepts such as Stokes’ friction law of particles in a viscous medium are ubiquitously employed in molecular dynamics. The present treatise is unique in the sense that it juxtaposes the principles of the analytical formalism in the form of computer simulations with real experiments. If the topology of objects is known or predetermined by suitable sample preparations, hydrodynamics can be simulated and measured under identical conditions. This option opens a promising application field of utmost importance for chemical engineering. The term fluid dynamics is moreover understood in a generalized sense. Apart from pressure-driven flow, a wealth of related transport phenomena will be addressed in this chapter. The scope covers examples as different as the spatially resolved probing of thermal convection, heat conduction, electroosmosis, and ionic currents.
