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

This article deals with the problem of temperature jump and slip velocity at the wall in gas/surface interaction. A consistent modelling of an impermeable surface involving an anisotropic scattering kernel developed in previous works is used to establish boundary conditions in unstructured molecule gas flows. Thus a temperature jump relation is derived in which the gas viscous effects at the wall and the mean velocity gradients appear. Likewise, a slip velocity relation is obtained in which both the slip coefficient and the thermal creep coefficient depend on the wall-to-gas temperature ratio. Moreover, both the temperature jump and the slip velocity relations involve not only one accommodation coefficient as in usual expressions, but also the gas/surface information through the various (notably normal and tangential) accommodation coefficients of the momentum components.
