Boundary slip in Newtonian liquids: a review of experimental studies

Neto, Chiara; Evans, Drew; Bonaccurso, Elmar; Butt, Hans-Juergen; Craig, Vincent


For several centuries fluid dynamics studies have relied upon the assumption that when a liquid flows over a solid surface, the liquid molecules adjacent to the solid are stationary relative to the solid. This no-slip boundary condition (BC) has been applied successfully to model many macroscopic experiments, but has no microscopic justification. In recent years there has been an increased interest in determining the appropriate BCs for the flow of Newtonian liquids in confined geometries,...[Show more]
