Description of product

In the last few years there has been significant progress in the development of microfluidics and nanofluidics at the application as well as at the fundamental and simulation levels. This book provides a comprehensive summary of these changes describing fluid flow in micro and nano configurations. Whereas in their previous book entitled Micro flows: Fundamentals and Simulation the authors covered scales from one hundred nanometers to microns (and beyond), in this new book they discuss length scales from angstroms to microns (and beyond). While still maintaining the emphasis on fundamental concepts with a mix of semi-analytical, experimental and numerical results, this book outlines their relevance to modelling and analysing functional devices. The text has been divided into three main subject categories: gas flows, liquid flows and simulation techniques. The majority of the completely new developments in this book are in liquid flows and simulation techniques chapters with modified information throughout the rest of the book. This book can be used in a two-semester graduate course. Also, selected chapters can be used for a short course or an undergraduate-level course. The book is suitable for graduate students and researchers in fluid mechanics and physics and in electrical, mechanical and chemical engineering. From a review of the earlier volume: ``For those who want to compute flows at the micro scale, this monograph is a must. It describes the state of the art and helps by providing the coefficients, such as needed in situations of slip. Those who wonder what new fluid dynamics there is in the micro world are served by the overview of theory and treasures of numerical methods. ``?European Journal of Mechanics B/Fluids, 2002 This special low-priced edition is for sale in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka only.
