Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

We present a new hybrid methodology for carrying out multiscale simulations of flow problems lying between continuum hydrodynamics and molecular dynamics, where macro/micro lengthscale separation exists only in one direction. Our multiscale method consists of an iterative technique that couples mass and momentum flux between macro and micro domains, and is tested on a converging/diverging nanochannel case containing flow of a simple Lennard-Jones liquid. Comparisons agree well with a full MD simulation of the same test case.
