    The dynamic behavior of charged micro and nanofluids plays a crucial role in a large variety of industrial and biological processes. Such dynamic behavior is characterized by the simultaneous occurrence of several competing mechanisms, such as electrostatic interactions, viscous dissipation and hydrodynamic effects, often taking place in complex geometries. This paper focuses on a thermal lattice Boltzmann model for micro/nano-flows.
