O'Hare, Lynne (2008) Continuum Simulation of Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer in Gas Microsystems. PhD thesis, UoS.
The aim of the present work is to make use of the constitutive scaling method to produce a computational tool suitable for analysing microscale flows. Both incompressible and compressible numerical solvers featuring constitutive scaling models and a range of appropriate boundary conditions have been developed to this end. A detailed assessment of the implications of extending the constitutive scaling method to fully compressible flows has also been carried out.
