Grahic Jump Location
Effects of Reynolds number, surface roughness, Darcy number, and Forchheimer drag term on the change in friction factor for microtubular flows
Grahic Jump Location
Effect of Darcy number on microtubular velocity profile (ReD=2000,h/Dh=0.02, the Forchheimer term is retained). (Reprinted from Ref. 3 with written permission from IOP, Bristol, UK)
Grahic Jump Location
Comparisons of porous medium layer (PML) model predictions with experimental data: (a) Mala and Li (1999); and (b) Guo and Li (2003) (Reprinted from Ref. 3 with written permission from IOP, Bristol, UK)
Grahic Jump Location
Comparison of modeling results with Poiseuille flow for (a) PML microchannel; and (b) PML microtube
Grahic Jump Location
Schematics of the micro-journal bearing: R1 and R2 represent radii of the rotor and stator, respectively, whereas ξ1L1U2L and ξ2U are the interface coordinates of the inner and outer porous layers
