Vapor-Liquid Interfaces, Bubbles and Droplets: Fundamentals by Shigeo Fujikawa,Takeru Yano,Masao Watanabe

By Shigeo Fujikawa,Takeru Yano,Masao Watanabe

Physically right boundary stipulations on vapor-liquid interfaces are crucial on the way to make an research of flows of a liquid together with bubbles or of a gasoline together with droplets. compatible boundary stipulations don't exist this day. This booklet is anxious with the kinetic boundary situation for either the aircraft and curved vapor-liquid interfaces, and the fluid dynamics boundary situation for Navier-Stokes(fluid dynamics) equations.

The kinetic boundary is formulated at the foundation of molecular dynamics simulations and the fluid dynamics boundary is derived by means of a perturbation research of Gaussian-BGK Boltzmann equation appropriate to polyatomic gases.

The fluid dynamics boundary situation is utilized to real movement difficulties of bubbles in a liquid and droplets in a gas.
