ABSTRACT
The biomimetic flow at different scales has been discussed at length. The need of looking into the biological surfaces and morphologies and both geometrical and physical similarities to imitate the technological products and processes has been emphasized. The complex fluid flow and heat transfer problems, the fluid-interface and the physics involved at multiscale and macro-, meso-, micro- and nano-scales have been discussed. The flow and heat transfer simulation is done by various CFD solvers including Navier-Stokes and energy equations, lattice Boltzmann method and molecular dynamics method. Combined continuum-molecular dynamics method is also reviewed.

No MeSH data available.

Figure 9: Plot of velocity parallel to a macroscopically flat wall and of temperature as a function of wall distance. Spheres and squares represent the particle and the continuum domain, respectively. (From [40]).

Mentions: Figure 9 shows the velocity and temperature profiles observed in a simulation using Lennard-Jones particles and a Navier-Stokes continuum.
